Former lawyer, Andrew Neill Simpson, who laundered $2.2 million for the Comanchero Motorcycle Club, has been granted parole, Stuff reports. Simpson was jailed in February 2020 for his participation in a sophisticated money and drug operation, and was delisted as a lawyer in December. Simpson, who is now 43, appeared on March 2 in front of the Parole Board, where parole was granted. The decision said Simpson does not present a significant risk to the safety of the community and now has a good grasp of what he needs to do to safely conduct himself in the future.
