LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Police say a California man disbarred in the late 1980s has been cited on suspicion of practicing law in Nebraska without a license after offering his services in an online ad.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1jbI5nK ) that a man contacted 81-year-old Burton Berman after seeing his ad and paid Berman $250 to help him file for divorce.

Lincoln Police spokeswoman, Officer Katie Flood, says police began investigating Berman on Sept. 3 at the request of the Lancaster County Attorney’s Office. Flood says Berman was disbarred in California for being involved in a money-laundering scheme.

A working telephone number for Berman could not be found Thursday.
