Former Idaho Prosecutor Won’t Get Law License Back Yet
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — An ex-southwestern Idaho prosecutor who has been accused of stealing public money failed to win back his law license, for now. The Idaho Statesman reports former Canyon County Prosecutor John Bujak sought to have his suspension from 2011 lifted.
But Idaho Supreme Court Justice Roger Burdick concluded Tuesday the suspension will remain in effect, until the Idaho Bar Association had completed its investigation. Bujak had agreed to the suspension amid allegations he took several hundred thousand dollars from a contract to provide legal services to the city of Nampa.
So far, Bujak has gone through four felony trials, without a guilty verdict against him. Bujak was prosecutor for about 21 months before quitting Sept. 30, 2010. State Bar Counsel Bradley Andrews, along with Bujak, had proposed lifting the suspension.
