A three-judge panel of the Court of Criminal Appeals found Roane County attorney Spence Bruner in contempt of court on Tuesday.
“We just feel obligated,” Judge Joseph M. Tipton said. “There’s been such a long time of just willful neglect of your responsibility to this court.”
Bruner was ordered to serve 10 days in jail, pay a $50 fine and court costs.
The jail time will be suspended if he pays the fine and costs within 30 days.
