Misdemeanor Conviction Does Not Preclude Bar Admission

The Louisiana Supreme Court ordered the admission to practice of an applicant with a misdemeanor criminal conviction. The Board of Bar Examiners had opposed, but the court had granted, permission for the applicant to sit for the bar examination. After the applicant had passed, the court directed that Disciplinary Counsel conduct an investigation of his character and fitness to practice. A hearing was then held before a commissioner, who recommended admission. (Mike Frisch)
