DALLAS - Rob Campos, the bachelor on the NBC reality dating show "For Love or Money," said he plans to continue practicing law, even though the firm he worked for has severed ties with him.
Mathur Law Offices ended its association with Campos following the revelation on The Smoking Gun Web site that the 33-year-old drunkenly groped the breasts of a female officer while stationed at the Naval Justice School in Newport, R.I., in 1999.
Campos was expelled from his training program and ordered to undergo substance abuse treatment. The incident effectively ended his military career, the Web site said.
In a statement released Wednesday through NBC, Campos said: "I was never an employee of the Mathur law firm; I worked with them as an independent contractor. I rented space at their office in Dallas and did not receive a salary. I also maintained my own set of clients. Although I will no longer be associated with that firm, I do plan to continue in the private practice of law."
On "For Love or Money," Campos must choose a potential mate from 15 women. At the show's end, the woman will be asked to choose between him and a $1 million prize.
