Cicilline's brother wants law license back

Posted: Updated:
PROVIDENCE -

The older brother of U.S. Rep. David Cicilline (sis-ill-EE'-nee) wants his law license back after being disbarred following his conviction for shaking down drug-dealing clients.

The Providence Journal (http://bit.ly/1bWfue2 ) reported Friday that John M. Cicilline filed a petition with the state Supreme Court to have his license to practice law reinstated. Cicilline had been disbarred and sentenced to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy, obstruction of justice and making false statements.

Cicilline's attorney says in his petition that Cicilline has "the moral qualifications, competency and learning in law" for reinstatement. Vincent Indeglia says Cicilline had a "long and distinguished career" before his arrest.

Cicilline's partner Joseph Bevilacqua Jr. also pleaded guilty in the case. He is the son of former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Joseph Bevilacqua.
