PHOENIX -- A Phoenix defense attorney already imprisoned for helping a criminal gang led by her husband, a prison inmate whom she represented, will not be able to practice law.

The State Bar of Arizona said Friday that Carmen Lynn Fischer has been suspended from acting as an attorney on an interim basis.

A state Supreme Court judge handed down the order, saying Fischer had violated the rules of professional conduct.

Fischer was sentenced March 17 to three years in prison after pleading guilty to one count each of attempted money laundering and of assisting a criminal street gang.
