CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A former Albemarle County official convicted of a misdemeanor sex crime has given up his law license.

The Daily Progress (https://bit.ly/1pEUAuD ) reports that the Virginia State Bar’s Disciplinary Board revoked former county Supervisor Christopher Dumler’s law license last week. Dumler had been facing a disciplinary hearing by the Bar.

The newspaper says Dumler sent an affidavit to the Bar in late September. In the affidavit, Dumler said he couldn’t successfully defend against the disciplinary proceedings if they were based on his conviction.

Dumler pleaded guilty in January 2013 to misdemeanor sexual battery. He resigned from the Board of Supervisors in June 2013.

The State Bar’s counsel, Ned Davis, says Dumler’s law license had already been suspended for administrative violations.
