Former NC Governor Easley gets law license back

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley is again allowed to practice law, two years after his license was suspended following a felony plea.
    
The North Carolina State Bar on Monday reinstated the two-term Democratic governor and former attorney general's law license. State Bar Secretary L. Thomas Lunsford II wrote in his order that Easley satisfied the requirements of his suspension.
    
Easley accepted criminal responsibility in November 2010 for an improperly filed campaign finance report.  Easley's Alford plea for the lowest-grade felony in state law focused on a 2006 helicopter flight worth $1,600 that wasn't reported.
    
The conviction ended both state and federal investigations into the ex-governor that began shortly after he left office in 2009.
    
Easley has practiced law since 1976 after graduating from North Carolina Central University law school.
