Prison Rather Than State Bar Presidency

The Minnesota Supreme Court disbarred an attorney convicted of first degree sexual assault. The StarTribune.com reports:

[The attorney], 47, was a civil lawyer for the downtown Minneapolis firm Gray Plant Mooty and was in line to become president of the Minnesota State Bar Association next July. He was president of the Hennepin County Bar Association in 2001-2002.

[He] must serve at least 12 years in prison. He would then be under supervision of the court system for 10 more years.

The conviction involved the rape of a 15 year old neighbor. (Mike Frisch)
