MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court has reinstated the license of a Kenosha lawyer two years after a federal court overturned his conviction for money laundering.

Walter Stern III was convicted of money laundering in June 2012 in connection with a bankruptcy case. He was sentenced to prison, and the state Supreme Court suspended his law license for two years.

In July 2013, a federal appellate court overturned the conviction, ruling that the trial court wrongly prevented Stern from testifying about his conduct. He was released from prison after serving about six months of his sentence.

In February 2015, Stern petitioned for reinstatement of his law license. The Supreme Court granted the reinstatement Thursday. Stern did not immediately respond to a voicemail requesting comment.
