TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A prominent New Jersey attorney and former prosecutor involved in a bribery scheme has been disbarred by the state Supreme Court.

The Star-Ledger (https://bit.ly/1hVH5wa) reported Monday that 68-year-old Clifford Minor was “disbarred by consent” after an investigation into his role in the 2011 bribery scheme. The disbarment took effect Thursday.

Minor admitted that he helped arrange for an innocent man to plead guilty to gun charges in exchange for cash. He pleaded guilty to bribery and perjury related charges and received a two-year prison sentence.

The bribery plot was uncovered by the FBI during an investigation into high-profile defense attorney Paul Bergrin, who was charged with and later convicted of arranging the murder of a federal informant.
