The Virginia State Bar Disciplinary Board has posted the order of public reprimand of a former federal prosecutor in Georgia whose 'intermittent romantic relationship" with an agent of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives led to motions for new trials in two matters and resentencing in another case.
The Board applied Georgia ethics rules and found that the conduct related only to potential impeachment evidence.
The Virginia investigation did not reveal clear and convincing evidence of any other misconduct. (Mike Frisch)
