WILKES-BARRE – An attorney from Butler Township facing two counts of child corruption in Luzerne County Court is forbidden to practice law for a month.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court suspended the law license for Robert Zanicky, 39, for 30 days effective Jan. 5.

Zanicky's license was suspended for failure to follow rules for continuing legal education, according to a letter from the Pennsylvania Judicial Center filed in the county's prothonotary office on Wednesday.

Matthew Todd Herbert, of Pittston, also had his law license suspended for the same reason.

Zanicky and Herbert could not be reached for comment on Thursday.

Zanicky is facing two counts of corruption of minors in connection with an investigation by Kingston Township police and county detectives with the District Attorney's Office.

Two teen girls alleged Zanicky separately took them to a motel on Kidder Street, Wilkes-Barre, in January and February 2011. One of the girls stated she ran out of the room while the other girl said she had consensual sex with Zanicky, according to the criminal complaint.

Zanicky strongly denied the allegations when he was charged in December 2011.

Zanicky is a founding member of United Soccer Training Academy, and often traveled overseas to coach soccer in underdeveloped nations. He practiced immigration law and commercial litigation.
