Beldock, P. J., Christ, Brennan, Rabin and Hopkins, JJ., concur.
The above-named attorney, who was admitted to the Bar by this court on March 21, 1945, has submitted to this court a paper signed by him, and acknowledged by him before a notary public on October 6, 1969, which states that he tenders his resignation from the Bar of this State. This attorney was indicted by a Kings County Grand Jury on December 20, 1968 (indictment No. 4314/1968), charging him with four counts of each of the following four crimes, committed with respect to his position as an Assistant District Attorney: (1) bribe receiving (a class D felony); (2) receiving reward for official misconduct (a class E felony); (3) receiving unlawful gratuities (a class A misdemeanor); and (4) official misconduct (a class A misdemeanor). On October 6, 1969, in the Supreme Court, Kings County, he pled guilty to receiving unlawful gratuities, under the 15th count of the indictment, and was sentenced to a conditional discharge. The resignation is accepted and directed to be filed; and it is ordered that said attorney's name be struck from the roll of attorneys and counselors at law, effective as of October 20, 1969, the date of this decision.
