An attorney convicted in a money laundering scheme was suspended for four years by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
The attorney had served as the outside counsel for a bank. He was convicted as a result of an FBI undercover sting operation of bribes and kickbacks from unqualified loan applicants. The FBI agent --one John Roberts -- approached the bank president with an idea to conceal his ownership in property because of a bitter divorce.
The suspended was imposed starting from the date of his interim suspension by the court. (Mike Frisch)
