The Globe reports the state Bar Counsel wants state Sen. Dianne Wilkerson disbarred, saying she lied under oath during a 2005 court hearing involving her nephew:
In both the court appearance and in the affidavit, Wilkerson falsely claimed that she was present at a Boston police station when two homicide detectives interviewed another relative, Isaac Wilkerson, about the 1994 stabbing death of Hazel Mack, the petition said.
The complaint now goes before the state Supreme Judicial Court.
The office was acting on a complaint brought by the Boston Police Detectives Benevolent Society against Wilkerson. Wilkerson has long had a stormy relationship with Boston police.
