SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - The actions of a southwest Florida prosecutor are under review after officials say he practiced law for about two weeks with a suspended license.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune (https://goo.gl/Pq5lrq) reported Wednesday that Assistant State Attorney Hagen Brody charged more than 20 people with crimes and got a conviction in a major drug trafficking trial while he was suspended from April 1 to April 15. The Florida Bar said Brody had failed to show that he completed his continuing education requirements.

Brody had taken the required classes but acknowledged that he had not recorded them.

Florida Bar spokeswoman Karen Kirksey said messages informing Brody about the credits went unanswered. His email and postal address weren’t current.

State Attorney Ed Brodsky says he’s changing the way his office tracks his attorneys’ status. He learned of Brody’s situation from a defense attorney.
