Former Gov. Mike Easley wants his law license back.
The license of Easley, a lawyer, former state attorney general and two-term Democratic governor, had been suspended until last month by the state agency that regulates lawyers as a result of Easley’s felony conviction in 2010 on a campaign finance violation.
Easley, 62, gave up his law license as he accepted the conviction, which was the result of a plea deal that avoided at least one other possible charge and ended lengthy state and federal investigations of Easley. More here.
