Ohio court suspends lawyer tied to bribery scheme

Written by 


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The state Supreme Court has temporarily suspended the law license of a former bank lobbyist following his conviction in a bribery and money-laundering scheme under Ohio's former state treasurer.

Mohammed Noure Alo now faces disciplinary proceedings. Alo was convicted in December on a felony wire fraud charge. His lawyer said he's not yet been sentenced.

Prosecutors say Alo, then-deputy state treasurer Amer Ahmad and others conspired to use Ahmad's state position to steer lucrative state business for personal gain.

Facing 15 years in prison for bribery and conspiracy, Ahmad fled the country this spring. He was arrested in Pakistan in April for traveling on false documents and is believed to remain in custody. U.S. officials aren't commenting.
