Ganim looses battle for law license

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) -- A panel of three judges have ruled that former Bridgeport mayor Joseph Ganim will not have his law license reinstated.

In the final report, the judges wrote, "[T]he underlying crimes spanning from 1995-1999, the uncontroverted evidence that he intentionally gave false testimony in 2003, the clear evidence in the record that he denied engaging in the criminal conduct and has never expressed remorse despite many opportunities to do so... compels out conclusion that the record cannot substantiate a finding of good moral character and fitness to practice law."

In 2003, Ganim was convicted of 16 federal counts for accepting expensive bribes in the form of expensive wine, clothes, and cash. He lost his law license and spent seven years in prison.
