MORGANTOWN, WV (AP) -

An assistant attorney general will lose her law license for two years for violating professional rules of conduct while serving as the public defender for a man appealing his double murder conviction.

After getting word of the state Supreme Court ruling Sept. 26, spokeswoman Beth Ryan said Wendy Elswick will resign her post Sept. 27.

The Office of Disciplinary Counsel had asked the court in February to suspend Wendy Elswick's law license for three years, but Elswick contested the suspension.

The court ordered her license suspended for two years.

The opinion also requires that she submit to a mental health evaluation, undergo 12 hours of continuing education in legal ethics, and pay the costs of the court proceedings.

If Elswick is reinstated, she'll be on probation for two years.
