Former Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano has been formally disbarred in a Sept. 25 ruling from the state Supreme Court’s Appellate Division.

The court documents state that a lawyer is “automatically disbarred” when convicted of a felony, but the court decision strikes Mangano’s name from the roll of attorneys and councilors-at-law. 

Mangano has neither opposed the motion nor issued a response, according to the decision. 

Mangano, along with his wife, Linda, was found guilty on corruption charges in early March. 

Edward Mangano was convicted after a seven-week trial in Central Islip of bribery and accepting kickbacks in exchange for governmental action. 

His bribery conviction is based on a deal he made with Harendra Singh, a restaurateur on Long Island and a star witness in the trial, in which Singh kicked back money and personal benefits in return for pushing the Town of Oyster Bay to authorize loans for Singh, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney’s office. 

Mangano and his wife obstructed justice by conspiring with Singh to fabricate work Linda Mangano supposedly performed at Singh’s restaurant to prevent a grand jury investigation, the news release said. 

Kevin Keating, Mangano’s Garden City attorney, declined to comment. 

Mangano’s sentencing scheduled for Oct. 3 before U.S. District Judge Joan Azrack was postponed to Dec. 18, according to court documents.
