Annapolis lobbyist Bruce C. Bereano, who was convicted of mail fraud Wednesday, will not be allowed to continue teaching his popular legislative seminar at the University of Maryland School of Law in Baltimore.
Associate Dean Mark Sargent told Bereano's 20 to 25 students last night that the law school believed it was "severely inappropriate" for Bereano to continue teaching the seminar.
Initially, Mr. Sargent said the law school and Bereano had agreed that "as long as he had not been convicted he would be given the presumption of innocence to which he is entitled."
Bereano continued to teach throughout his trial.
Lobbyist and lawyer John Moag, along with another teacher, will take over the class.
