North Idaho Attorney Dies in Accidental Drowning

Posted By on Tue, Mar 18, 2014 at 9:30 AM

A longtime attorney who practiced law in Caldwell, served one term in the Idaho Legislature, became an assistant U.S. attorney and represented scores of clients through his own Coeur d'Alene law office drowned March 17 in North Idaho's Lake Pend Oreille.

This morning's Coeur d'Alene Press reports that the body of 70-year-old Sam Eismann was found in the water near his Bayview float home.

"At this point it looks like an accident," Kootenai County Sheriff's Office Lt. Stu Miller told the Press. "But we don't know if it was caused by a medical event or if he just fell in the water."

The Press reports that Eismann defended former Shoshone County Sheriff Frank Crnkovich against federal racketeering charges in 1993. He was acquitted.
