VA Atty Timothy George Hayes has had his license summarily suspended after a felony conviction of drug dealing

A Tazewell attorney has had his license summarily suspended after a felony conviction in Tazewell County Circuit Court in January of this year.

Timothy George Hayes pleaded no contest to distribute or manufacture a controlled substance for profit. Hayes was charged in July of 2016 and the case had been under advisement and was removed from that status.

Hayes was sentenced to five years in prison Oct. 1 with four years and eight months of that suspended. Hayes will have three years of supervised probation once he is released.

 

State bar records show Hayes had been a licensed attorney since April of 2006.  The bar association issued a show cause giving Hayes until Oct. 26 to appear before the disciplinary committee and give reasons why his license should not be further suspended or revoked.

 

Court records indicate Hayes was charged with selling drugs dating back to August of 2015 resulting in his indictment by a grand and the case had been continued several times before there was a plea agreement in May of this year.

The state bar’s disciplinary committee is a 20 member panel consisting of 16 attorneys and four lay people. They hear the most serious cases of attorney misconduct.
