The Supreme Court of Georgia on Monday formally terminated the law license of attorney Richard S. Thompson, a former U.S. attorney of the Southern District of Georgia, because he is serving three years in prison for aggravated stalking.

The high court called Thompson’s voluntary surrender of his law license “tantamount to disbarment.” Thompson’s loss of his law license stems from two felony convictions in January and two consecutive 10-year sentences that include three years in custody followed by 17 years on probation.  As a condition of the sentences, Thompson will be banished from the Brunswick Circuit, where his ex-girlfriend lives and that includes Thompson’s hometown of Vidalia.
