“His academic areas of interest include legal ethics and professional responsibility….” This is what Adjunct Professor Jack Vitayanon’s Georgetown Law faculty profile read prior to his arrest this past Wednesday. Although Professor Vitayanon’s arrest has been made public throughout national media and his faculty profile has been removed, the student body has yet to receive a statement from university leadership.
Vitayanon, who also served as an Attorney-Advisor at the IRS’ Office of Professional Responsibility, was arrested Wednesday for conspiring to distribute upwards of 500 grams of methamphetamine. For the visual learners, that’s about the size of 3 and a half apples, or a pack of ground beef. Vitayanon has allegedly been engaged in the aforementioned extracurricular activities since September of 2014. Interestingly enough, Vitayanon’s LinkedIn profile reflects that his employment at Georgetown began that same year in May.
