I'll Take Manhattan

An attorney convicted of criminal offenses was disbarred by the New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department:

Considering the serious  criminal conduct underlying respondent's convictions, which included his involvement in and profiting from a high-priced Manhattan escort-prostitution ring, we direct respondent's disbarment from the practice of law, effective immediately.

Here's a related post from the Village Voice ("Lawyer Gets Off Light for Running Whorehouse...").

 The attorney is a former prosecutor charged with far more serious offenses as reported here.
