Rape Conviction Results In Disbarment

The case had received a significant amount of publicity, as reflected in the linked Wikipedia entry. The press and blogs had referred to the defendant as a "hockey mom" (erroneously, according to Wikipedia) before that phrase had entered the political scene. (Mike Frisch)
