N. GAYLE BISHOP [#94933], 63, of Pleasanton was suspended for three years, stayed, placed on three years of probation with an actual five-year suspension, and was ordered to prove her rehabilitation and take the MPRE. Credit will be given for an interim suspension which began Aug. 1, 1997. The order took effect July 12, 2002.
In 1997, Bishop, a former member of the Contra Costa County board of supervisors, was convicted of five counts of misuse of public funds and four counts of perjury. Two perjury convictions later were reversed on appeal.
Bishop was accused of using county staff employees and county resources during regular business hours to assist her in running her private law practice. She also was accused of using county employees to use county equipment and supplies to create and disseminate invitations to fundraisers, to create a file of complimentary letters and articles for use in her campaign, and to create campaign materials targeted at specific geographical areas.
The perjury convictions were based on Bishop's testimony before the grand jury.
In mitigation, she has no record of discipline since her 1980 admission to the bar, she cooperated with the bar's investigation, and she produced letters from other lawyers and the community attesting to her good moral character.
