FRANKFORT, Ky. — Nearly a year after he pleaded guilty to theft and bribery and resigned from the Kentucky Bar Association, the Kentucky Supreme Court has decided former disability attorney Eric C. Conn should never be allowed to practice law again.
The state’s highest court this week decided to permanently disbar Conn.
The court based its decision on Conn’s guilty plea last year to theft and bribery, as part of a scheme to defraud the Social Security Administration. The justices also considered Conn’s 2013 guilty plea to a charge of making a straw contribution to a candidate.
A copy of the court’s opinion is attached below.
