Columbus Attorney Disbarred For Role In State Bribery Scheme

Chicago Sun Times

A Columbus attorney convicted in a bribery scheme involving a former deputy state treasurer has been permanently disbarred. Mohammed Noure Alo's law license has been suspended since his 2014 conviction as one of the conspirators who used the position of friend and then-deputy state treasurer Amer Ahmad to enrich themselves and their businesses by securing lucrative state contracts. Alo recieved a 4-year prison term and three years of probation. Ahmad fled to Pakistan before being extradited and sentenced to 15 years. The treasurer at the time was Democrat Kevin Boyce, a former Columbus City Council member and current Franklin County Commissioner.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
