NEW YORK, Jan 3 (Reuters) - David Loglisci, one of a number
of people who pleaded guilty in a "pay for play" scandal
involving former New York comptroller Alan Hevesi, has been
disbarred, an appeals court said Thursday.
Loglisci served as chief investment officer at the state
pension fund and pleaded guilty to a felony violation of the
state's business law in 2010.
In what amounts to a formality, the Appellate Division,
First Department, struck Loglisci's name from the state's roll
of attorneys on Thursday, retroactive to the date of his plea.
Loglisci was given a conditional discharge at his sentencing
in October. He cooperated with authorities in their
investigation, which uncovered a kickback scheme that gave
favored treatment to certain money managers and resulted in a
prison sentence for Hevesi.
Hevesi was released from prison last month after serving 20
months of a one to four year sentence.
The case is Matter of Loglisci, Appellate Division, First
Department, No. 4464.
For the departmental disciplinary committee: Raymond
For Loglisci: None.
