GREEN RIVER – A former Rawlins public defender was the subject of disciplinary action from the Wyoming State Bar Association this week.

A sexual relationship between former public defender John Joseph DeLeon and a woman on probation in the same county led to DeLeon’s release from his job in 2018, and to the public censure issued by the Wyoming Supreme Court this week.
