By Adam Lerner (Politico) –
Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell’s license to practice law will be suspended next week as a result of his conviction on 11 federal corruption charges, the Virginia State Bar said Friday.
McDonnell’s license will be suspended effective Jan. 29, though it’s been administratively suspended since mid-October for his failure to pay dues. He served as Virginia attorney general from 2006 to 2009 and was a JAG officer in the U.S. Army Reserve until 1997, when he retired as lieutenant colonel.
McDonnell will have a chance to appeal the decision on Feb. 20, which happens to be the same day when his wife Maureen is scheduled to be in court for sentencing on the eight corruption charges on which she was convicted.
McDonnell is currently appealing his corruption convictions but is set to begin his two-year prison term on Feb. 9.
