TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCJB) - Former state attorney Jeff Siegmeister’s troubles have grown after being suspended from the Florida Bar following a state Supreme Court ruling.

The Bar petitioned to have him suspended after he failed to respond to an “order to show cause” and was held in contempt of court.

Siegmeister faces federal charges including bribery, conspiracy, wire fraud, and tax fraud.
