The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department revoked the admission and struck from its rolls an attorney who had defaulted on charges that he had failed to disclose a 1997 conviction in England of the offense (maybe it should be offence?) "of being knowingly concerned in the fraudulent evasion of a prohibition or restriction on importation of a class A controlled drug, specifically cocaine."
The order notes that he was sentenced to an eight-year prison term. (Mike Frisch)
