An attorney convicted of sexually assaulting two women under color of law was permanently disbarred by the Louisiana Supreme Court. He was serving as Deputy City Attorney for the City of New Orleans at the time of the crimes.
The court rejected his claim that the conviction was not a final one for purposes of bar discipline, holding that the possibility of habeas relief did not affect finality.
The Free Republic reports that he is serving a life sentence in prison. (Mike Frisch)
