Moral Turpitude

The District of Columbia Board on Professional Responsibility issued a report last week recommending that David Safavian be disbarred for his conviction of a crime involving moral turpitude. Under D.C. case law established in the disciplinary case against Charles Colson, a felony conviction for an offense (here one of the counts involved obstruction of justice) that inherently involves moral turpitude results in automatic disbarment.

The report may be found through the following link.  (Mike Frisch)
