Former Roane County Judge Thomas Alva Austin will be looking for a new line of work when he’s released from federal prison.
His days of practicing law appear to be over after he was disbarred by the Supreme Court of Tennessee.
The state’s high court issued the order on Dec. 13.
According to a court press release, Austin consented to the disbarment.
The press release also states Austin may apply for reinstatement of his law license after five years.
