Failure To Disclose Criminal Past, Present Leads To Disbarment

A Colorado attorney who had knowingly provided false information on his bar admission application was disbarred by the Presiding Disciplinary Judge based on his conditional admission of misconduct. According to the linked summary, he denied that he was under criminal investigation and "provided no information concerning his prior criminal activities." In September 2009, he pled guilty to conspiracy to launder the proceeds of meth and ecstacy sales and distribution.
