A Bexar County district court on March 31 suspended the law license of San Antonio solo Alberto Acevedo Jr. after the Commission for Lawyer Discipline sued him, alleging that Acevedo poses “a substantial threat of irreparable harm to clients.”
The suspension of Acevedo’s law license comes after he pleaded guilty on March 17 to one count of “theft or bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds.” He was accused of bribing former 144th District Judge Angus McGinty with cash, car repairs and other gifts in exchange for lenient sentences and less restrictive conditions of release for his clients. McGinty resigned his bench on Feb. 14.
