I see what you mean. I was just going by what something a lawyer friend of mine said (not about this case). He works in corporate securities and has to be ever so careful and said if he breaks the law even just a little, he could lose his license. So I made an assumption that you could not practice law with any kind of record. Haven't there been attorneys disbarred because of a DUI?
I do believe in second chances. I would just hate for someone to suffer through law school only to find that they cannot practice.
