(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Supreme Court has suspended a former Indianapolis city prosecutor's law license for altering records of his communications with Call 6 Investigates.

Jordan Fischer, from RTV6 reports, former deputy prosecutor Mark Pizur was terminated from his position in April 2016 after he admitting to doctoring public records. In a statement to the court, Pizur called the move a "total lapse of judgment."

The records in question were email communications between Pizur and Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenney following the death of puppies at the city shelter. The puppies were delivered by dogs seized from Upton's Famous Pet Training Center as part of an ongoing case against the kennel.

Last week, the Indiana Supreme Court ordered Pizur to serve a 180-day suspension from practicing law, to begin Nov. 22.

Pizur's law license will be automatically reinstated following that period.

The city of Indianapolis eventually returned the dogs to Upton after an agreement was reached in December 2016. In exchange, Upton agreed to dismiss several lawsuits against the city and halt pending records requests and complaints.
