BOISE, Idaho - Former Canyon County prosecutor John Bujak can practice law again after his license was re-instated by the Idaho Supreme Court.
Bujak's license was suspended in 2012 as he was fighting prosecution for misusing hundreds of thousands in taxpayer funds.
He's since fended off nearly all the charges and now is considering a run for governor as an independent in 2014.
Bujak quit as prosecutor in September 2010 after being accused of diverting money from a $734,000 contract he'd struck for the Canyon County prosecutor's office to handle misdemeanors for Nampa.
Bujak maintains it was a legal contract that saved taxpayers money, earned Canyon County lawyers raises and bolstered his personal pay.
A jury in 2012 found him not guilty, though he pleaded guilty to a charge of contempt of court.
