Mexican Mafia Attorney Disbarred

From the February 2011 California Bar Journal:

[An attorney] was disbarred Dec. 9, 2010, and was ordered to comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.

[The attorney] pleaded guilty to 12 felonies including racketeering, money laundering and conspiracy to commit money laundering.

The federal charges stemmed from [his] connections with the notorious Mexican Mafia prison gang that often controls activities of Latino street gangs in California. According to the indictment, from October 2003 until September 2008, [he] transferred approximately $27,500 into the prison account of a Mexican Mafia member incarcerated at the federal “Supermax” facility in Florence, Colo. The indictment also alleged that [he] and the imprisoned Mexican Mafia member were partners in several businesses, including a limousine service, a liquor distributor and a real estate holding corporation.
