Bujak Reclaims Law License, Will Open Private Practice


Former Canyon County Prosecutor John Bujak—who successfully fought back criminal charges of preparation of false evidence and computer crime—says he's anxious to get back to practice private law following the Idaho Supreme Court's decision to reinstate his license.

This morning's Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Bujak said his reinstatement "marks the end of a three-year battle to get my life back."

In July, prosecutors dropped the felony charges after two juries acquitted Bujak of other crimes—theft by unauthorized control and misuse of public funds— in separate trials.

"I'm thankful for the support of people in the local community and throughout the state, including those who signed my petitions," said Bujak.

Those petitions spurred Bujak to recently declare his intention to run for Idaho governor in 2014.

Bujak said he was a victim of Idaho's "good-old-boy system."
