Does this convicted felon deserve the lighter sentence and early release simply because he was an attorney and judge? Some say he should be released early since he has a lot of support locally within the community because his family is so strong in the community and so supportive of him releasing early.

NO !! in fact his status as a former attorney and judge should earn him a stiffer sentence. he held a position of trust and authority and used it to commit crimes and steal from those in his charge. lighter sentence? dont be rediculous ! let him do his time like everybody else !!

Word is he will be paroled. And after completing the terms of his parole the state has decided that he will be able to get his law license reinstated.

Also of interest is that of the hundreds of thousands of dollars he stole from clients and the state he only has to pay back $70,000 to clients he stole from and $30,000 to the state of Tennessee. He gets to keep all the rest free and clear.

Does this seem reasonable to you?

It's very surprising to me that the national media has not picked up this story yet.

Word is he won't be paroled, since the state wanted him prosecuted...remember, it wasn't local folks. He will get out in December 2014 anyway. He also won't get his law license back anytime soon. Folks in Nashville want to make an example of him. Sorry to burst your bubble. By the way, how are you kin to him?
