    Sure. To give you some background, the point of the bar application is to: (1) make sure you're minimally competent to practice law; and (2) to verify that you possess the good moral character necessary to be a member of the bar.

    The bar exam addresses #1.

    You have to fill out an extensive application detailing pretty much everything you've done in your life, or at least for the last 10 years, depending. Even criminal convictions that have been expunged count - the bar wants it all big or small.

    Usually, so long as you disclose, you're fine (emphasis on usually). The infraction occurs when you deliberately omit requested information. So, for example, if I disclosed that I had been arrested for simple assault and battery, I'd probably be ok. But if I withheld that information, became admitted, and the bar found out, then I could face any number of disciplinary sanctions, up to and including disbarment.

    Onto your point: the problem is that the Bar Disciplinary Committee (BDC) does not have Stringers' application, so they cannot prove whether or not he failed to disclose his conviction (I would assume he would because AZ would have requested DC's bar file).

    As to why DC didn't discipline him, I have no idea. Sexual assault would almost certainly get you a multi-year suspension and most likely disbarred in Nevada.

    I will say that in Nevada, upon conviction of a serious crime, you must report that conviction to the state bar. I think DC had the same rule. The discipline depends on what kind of crime committed.

    That sick **** needs to be taken out back and euthanized, or at the very least, castrated.
