Bradley Cooper, the former Johnson County prosecutor, has had his law license suspended for four years by the Indiana Supreme Court.
Cooper avoided jail time with a plea agreement in 2019 after brutally beating his girlfriend. He also stole her cell phone and pretended to be her in messages, then conducted media interviews where he accused her of attacking him.
The attack happened in March 2019. The following month he pled guilty to criminal confinement, domestic battery, identity deception and official misconduct.
The Court ruled that Cooper narrowly avoided disbarment, calling his acts “deplorable.”
Cooper’s law license has already been under “interim” suspension for a year and a half, according to the ruling.
