An attorney who was convicted on a no contest plea in Rhode Island to a felony offense involving carrying a .38 caliber handgun without a license has been suspended for a year and a day by a justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.
According to this summary on the web page of the Board of Bar Overseers, the attorney assumed retired status in Massachusetts after the arrest and plea, failed to report the conviction as required and failed to cooperate with the bar's investigation.
The Providence Journal reported that the attorney was arrested in the Office of the Rhode Island Attorney General. (Mike Frisch)
