Tennessee Judge Suspended

The Tennessee Supreme Court has ordered a 30-day suspension of a General Sessions Court judge who had been arrested on August 17, 2022 for driving under the influence as well as possession of a handgun while under the influence when a handgun was found in the glove box of his car.

The judge promptly self-reported the arrest and entered into an inpatient rehabilitation program. He successfully completed that program. 

He pleaded guilty to the driving offense and other charges were dismissed. He was required t o surrender the firearm, prohibited from driving for a year, and had an ignition interlock device on his vehicle. (Mike Frisch)
