With Malice Toward None

A former county prosecutor who had been disbarred in the wake of a forgery conviction was reinstated by the Wyoming Supreme Court.

The Billings Gazette had this report on the criminal case and resulting discipline. The Gazette reports that he had served as president of the National District Attorneys Association. The Cheyenne Examiner reported last September that he was pardoned by Governor Freudenthal.

The Wyoming Board of Professional Responsibility had recommended reinstatement, noting that the peitioner "recognized fully that, by his actions and poor choices, he put his colleagues, the investigators, the Special Prosecutor and sentencing judge in difficult positions given the public position he held in 2003" and that he "holds no feelings of malice or ill will to those who were compelled by duty to bring about the investigation, charges, sentencing or disciplinary proceedings against [him]."
