Making Book On Reinstatement

The New York Appellate Division for the Second Judicial Department has reinstated an attorney disbarred in 2007 for a felony conviction.

The court described the offense in its disbarment order

The respondent admitted that in or about February 6, 2005, acting in concert with other defendants in furtherance of a bookmaking operation in Queens County and elsewhere, he advanced and profited from said bookmaking operation in that he "participated in the acceptance of five bets for more than $5,000.00." On May 22, 2006, the respondent was sentenced to a conditional discharge, a crime victims assessment fee in the sum of $20, and a mandatory surcharge in the sum of $250.
