Former Batesville Prosecutor Stripped of Law License

APRIL 6, 2006 - Posted at 4:10 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former prosecutor T.J. Hively of Batesville, who was convicted of corruption-related charges, was stripped of his law license today by the Arkansas Supreme Court.

Hively was convicted in federal court on five counts that alleged he profited illegally from work on drug cases and child-support cases in north-central Arkansas.

The state Supreme Court issued a brief order today saying it accepted the surrender of Hively's license to practice law in Arkansas.  The order said that Hively's name is to be removed from the state registry of lawyers and that he is barred from practicing in the state.

In 2004, Hively was sentenced to five years in prison, with two years suspended.  He was also ordered to pay a $429,000 judgement.
