A Daytona Beach, Florida, lawyer has been disbarred for allegedly having sexual relationships with her clients, as well as using illegal drugs.
The Florida Bar said in a press release that Linda Dawn Hadad also had “inappropriate intimate relationships” and “engaged in inappropriate phone calls” with inmates at the Volusia County jail.

Additionally, the 43-year-old was late to court appearances, neglected cases and closed her office without informing clients, according to bar documents, which were cited by WFTV .
Hada reportedly made personal visits to two inmates and even had phone sex with them, according to those documents.
Hadad apparently admitted to – without a prescription -- taking several drugs, including Xanax and Oxycodone. She also admitted to using crack, ecstasy and meth.
It doesn’t end there.
Hadad is accused of renting a car for a man who repaid her in crack and pills, WFTV reports.
But her troubles come far before her official disbarrment was announced.
In 2010, Hadad was arrested on a DUI charge.
Just a few years later, in 2015, she was arrested on several occasions in Volusia County. Her offenses included driving with a suspended license, attempting to flee police and petty theft.
