One-time top aide to Governor Cuomo – Joseph Percoco has been disbarred after his conviction.

Percoco began his six-year federal prison sentence last month. He was convicted of bribery and fraud in the buffalo bid rigging scheme, taking $300,000 from companies who did business with the state.

The New York Supreme Court Appellate Division ordered his name stricken from the roll of attorneys.

It is a state law that any attorney convicted of a felony be disbarred.
