A solicitor serving three years for firearms offences is free to practise after his release following the Scottish Solicitors Discipline Tribunal's failure to strike him off.
James McIntyre, of Linlithgow, who was jailed after being found with two .22 pistols and ammunition, is to be censured based on the findings of Scottish law officials.
McIntyre was in court on 20 January after appearing at the tribunal a week before in connection with legal aid claims, following a raid on the Glasgow offices of McIntyre, Anderson & Co in November 1997 by officials from the Legal Aid Board.
His former partners Steven Anderson and Magnus McLennan were also cleared, with all three awarded half their costs, which landed the Law Society of Scotland with a £100,000 bill.
The solicitor, who represented himself at the hearing, was originally found guilty of the charge at the High Court in Edinburgh in November 1997. He claimed at the time he had been asked by a client to give the guns over to the police as part of a firearms amnesty.
