Kevin Meenan Disbarred

Cheyenne, WY – The State Supreme Court disbarred the former Casper District Attorney Tuesday. The disbarment stems from Kevin Meenan's guilty plea in December to two felonies and a misdemeanor in a fraud and forgery case involving his stepchildren. Meenan hoped to only receive a three-year suspension of his legal license. But Wyoming State Bar Chief Council Becky Lewis says the five-year disbarment was appropriate because it shows the Supreme Court and State Bar can police themselves. Lewis says a five-year disbarment is as stiff a penalty as Wyoming rules allow for. After five years, Meenan can apply to be reinstated.
