The web page of the Virginia State Bar reports the license revocation of a former Arnold & Porter attorney:
On June 10, 2011, the Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board revoked Joshua Jesse Robert Gessler’s license to practice law. In agreeing to the revocation, Mr. Gessler admitted that he was convicted of multiple felony counts of possession of child pornography, and that he could not defend any VSB charges based on the convictions. Mr. Gessler’s license has been summarily suspended since May 24. He pled guilty and was convicted on March 28 in the Fairfax County Circuit Court.
