The State Supreme Court has disbarred former house Speaker Gordon Fox. Fox recently pleaded guilty to several counts of public corruption.
Fox acknowledged that he would lose his license to practice law when he accepted a plea deal for the corruption charges. In March he pleaded guilty to charges of misspent campaign funds, and accepting a bribe for 52-thousand dollars.
In addition to losing his license and house seat, state education officials rescinded his honorary degree from his Alma Mater Rhode Island College.
Fox is expected back in court for sentencing in June. He could serve at least three years in jail according to his plea deal.
