No Car Registration = No Law License?

A lawyer who allegedly used his Portsmouth, N.H., office address rather than his Maine home address when registering three vehicles has been criminally charged and could conceivably lose his law license, reports the Seacoast.

Richard Foley, 53, of Kittery, Maine, who is charged with three felony title fraud counts, was arrested April 14 and released on $4,000 personal recognizance bond, the article reports. A New Hampshire attorney disciplinary official declined to comment on Foley’s case, but pointed a reporter to state supreme court rules that provide for law licenses to be suspended for “attorneys convicted of serious crimes.” By definition, these include felonies.
