James Mazi Parsa, 50, was convicted of unlawful sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old, a misdemeanor, in 2001. The conviction resulted in the suspension of his law license in 2014.

A California State Bar judge recently ordered Parsa to stop practicing, but his disbarment isn’t final until the California Supreme Court approves it.
