IN RE DARYL J. HUDSON, III, RESPONDENT. A Suspended Member of the Bar of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals (Bar Registration No. 292045)
Submitted April 8, 2014.
On Report and Recommendation of the Board on Professional Responsibility. (BDN-268-13).
Before EASTERLY and MCLEESE, Associate Judges, and RUIZ, Senior Judge.
Respondent, Daryl J. Hudson, III, was convicted in the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico on April 4, 2013, of seven counts of wire fraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1343 (2012). This court suspended respondent from the District of Columbia Bar on September 17, 2013. We ordered the Board of Professional Responsibility (" the Board" ) to determine whether respondent's convictions related to crimes involving moral turpitude within the meaning of the D.C. Code § 11-2503 (a) (2012 Repl.). The Board determined that wire fraud is a crime of moral turpitude per se and concluded, therefore, that respondent's disbarment is required. Neither respondent nor Bar Counsel have filed an exception to the Board's recommendation. Pursuant to D.C. Bar R. XI, § 9 (h)(2), " if no exceptions are filed to the Board's report, the Court will enter an order imposing the discipline recommended by the Board upon expiration of the time permitted for filing exceptions."
Accordingly, respondent is hereby disbarred from the District of Columbia Bar. For purposes of reinstatement, the disbarment will begin on the date that respondent files an affidavit demonstrating compliance with D.C. Bar Rule XI, § 14.
So ordered .
