A Philadelphia city employee and criminal defense attorney had his law license suspended by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for five years because of his federal conviction related to a Philadelphia parking ticket-fixing scheme.

The employee, Charles P. Mirarchi III, has served as a Philadelphia deputy commissioner of elections since 1979, according to a report by the Disciplinary Board of the Supreme Court. Mirarchi is also the son of former Commonwealth Court Senior Judge and former Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Charles Mirarchi Jr.
