According to the order, Weikal-Beauchat
stated to the court her
desire to resign, in accordance with the provisions of Rule 215 of the Pennsylvania Rules of Disciplinary Enforcement.
Adams County District Attorney Shawn Wagner said Monday that his office is involved in an ongoing investigation regarding Weikal-Beauchat.
told the Gettysburg Times last week that the issue is a civil matter involving about 20 of her
clients and that negotiations on a settlement were in the works.
Beauchat & Beauchat was founded in 1993 by Magisterial District Judge Mark Beauchat, who is the ex-husband of Weikal-Beauchat.
Mark Beauchat remains listed on the firm's website as a practicing lawyer, but Weikal-Beauchat
is identified as a principal.
Weikal-Beauchat also sits on the board of directors for the YWCA of Gettysburg and Adams County.
