Ohio court suspends law license of lobbyist convicted in bribery scheme at treasurer's office

Share/Save/Bookmark

COLUMBUS, Ohio — 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 (NOR'-ee AL'-oh) now faces disciplinary proceedings.

A message seeking comment was left Monday with Alo.

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 (ah-MEER' ah-MED') 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.
