A long-time New York lawyer earned himself a public censure after a “60 Minutes” segment showed him advising how to park suspicious funds in the U.S. and suggesting that American lawyers typically don’t face criminal prosecution because they “run the country.”

The New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, First Department on Tuesday issued a public censure to Marc Koplik of the Manhattan-based law firm Henderson & Koplik. The lawyer was admitted to the New York Bar in 1973, and according to his law firm biography, spent part of his early career at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton and Debevoise & Plimpton.
