Key Points:

An Auckland lawyer convicted of fraud for his role in a multimillion-dollar property scam has been struck off the roll of barristers and solicitors.

Robert John Warburton was sentenced in January to 21 months' jail, with leave to apply for home detention, after admitting four charges in connection with a $6.6 million scam that preyed on home owners, mainly in the Waikato.

Warburton was convicted with more than a dozen others, including lawyers, mortgage brokers and accountants, arrested as part of the police Operation Allsorts.
