DA Disbarred

The Tennessee Supreme Court disbarred the elected district attorney of the 13th Judicial District who had "knowingly misused and abused his position with the intent to obtain a significant benefit for another, and caused serious injury to the integrity of the legal process." He had improperly communicated with an incarcerated defendant charged with first degree murder and had misrepresented the strength of the case to the family of the victim. In a second matter, he engaged in a conflict of interest by assisting a person seeking post-conviction relief. He made misrepresentations and improperly withheld material information in order to help secure the relief sought. (Mike Frisch)
