Johnson told his story on MSNBC with his lawyer and former St. Louis Mayor Freeman Bosley, Jr..

Today Dorian Johnson’s lawyer and former St. Louis Mayor had his law license revoked today indefinitely.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported:

The Missouri Supreme Court has suspended former St. Louis Mayor Freeman R. Bosley Jr.’s law license indefinitely.

Initially, a three-member panel appointed by the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel called for a minimum two-year suspension because Bosley admitted in court Dec. 9 that he mishandled clients’ funds. It also noted Bosley combined personal and client funds, used trust account money to pay personal expenses and failed to keep accurate records.

Bosley went into private practice after losing a 1997 mayoral re-election bid.

The Post-Dispatch did not mention that Bosley was Johnson’s lawyer even though he has been holding several national interviews this past month.
