Convicted lawyer's license reinstated

The Supreme Court has reinstated the law license of an Augusta attorney convicted of aggravated assault on a police officer and other charges.

Anson A. Adams was arrested on Oct. 13, 2006, and a Richmond County Superior Court jury convicted Adams in 2007 after hearing evidence that the former law clerk for two Superior Court judges was drunk when he tried to flee after hitting a car in a parking lot.

Adams was sentenced to three years in prison followed by three years probation. Because the sentence was imposed under the First Offender Act and Adams successfully completed his sentence in May 2012, no conviction is on his record.

Adams voluntarily agreed to a suspension of his license in 2007.
