Cheap Labor Costs Law License

The January 2012 online edition of the California Bar Journal reports:

[An attorney] was disbarred Aug. 13, 2011, and was ordered to make restitution and comply with rule 9.20 of the California Rules of Court.

[The attorney] pleaded guilty in 2009 to a felony violation of harboring an illegal alien for private financial gain. Between 1974 and 1984, while he was a police officer, [he] harbored an illegal Philippine immigrant who performed a variety of domestic duties at below-market rates. He had helped the victim enter the U.S. unlawfully.

In mitigation, [he][ had no prior discipline record, he cooperated with law enforcement and the State Bar and he agreed to pay the victim $15,000 plus interest.
