Child Pornography On Hard Drive Leads To Bar Discipline

The web page of the Tennessee Board on Professional Responsibility reports  that an attorney was suspended for five years as a result of his conviction for possession of a computer hard drive that had three or more images of child pornography. An earlier description of the proceedings:

The Tennessee Supreme Court suspended Sevierville lawyer Ronald R. Reagan on Sept. 12 after he pleaded guilty to the serious crime of possession of a computer hard drive containing three or more visual depictions of child pornography, which have been shipped via interstate commerce. That guilty plea came on July 24. Following the plea, Reagan petitioned the court to surrender his law license. The court rejected that motion and referred the matter to the Board of Professional Responsibility. The formal proceeding concluded with a recommendation for suspension.
