By agreement of the parties, based upon Defendant Gary M. Prolman's plea of guilty on April 29, 2014 in the U. S. District Court, District of Maine, to a federal Information charging money laundering of marijuana proceeds, Mr. Prolman's license to practice law is now suspended effective this date pursuant to the Board of Overseers of the Bar's Petition for Temporary Suspension under M.
