MATTER JEROME J. COIN (ADMITTED AS JOSEPH COHEN) (11/21/68)

SUPREME COURT OF NEW YORK, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT


November 21, 1968

IN THE MATTER OF JEROME J. COIN (ADMITTED AS JOSEPH COHEN), AN ATTORNEY, RESPONDENT. ASSOCIATION OF THE BAR OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK, PETITIONER

Disciplinary proceedings instituted by the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. Respondent was admitted to the Bar on March 16, 1932, at a term of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court in the Second Judicial Department. By order entered March 12, 1968, George Trosk, Esq., was appointed Referee to take testimony and report to this court.

Stevens, J. P., Eager, Capozzoli, McGivern and Rabin, JJ., concur.

Author: Per Curiam

 On October 25, 1967 the respondent was convicted, after trial, of conspiracy to defraud the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service, in that he arranged sham marriages for the purpose of having the parties avoid immigration restrictions. The respondent, in effect, was sentenced to one year, the execution of which was suspended and he was fined $30,000, which was paid.

It is on the basis of that conviction, that this charge was brought. The Referee sustained the charge and we confirm such finding, and hold that respondent is guilty of professional misconduct.

Conviction of the above-mentioned Federal crime is a serious offense, involving fraudulent conduct. The respondent, therefore, should be disbarred.

Respondent disbarred effective December 23, 1968.

Disposition

Respondent disbarred effective December 23, 1968.
