A Nashville attorney arrested last spring on a laundry list of charges is expected to plead guilty this morning in Davidson County Criminal Court.
Reginald Lamont Horton, 35, was indicted by a grand jury in March 2009 on 17 drug and theft-related charges. Only days later, he was arrested while attending a hearing at the Metro Courthouse.
Horton, who received his law degree from Vanderbilt University in 2005, had only been practicing law a few years when the allegations surfaced that he was offering to trade legal services for stolen property.
Just six weeks after his arrest, the Tennessee Supreme Court suspended his law license.
His trial on two counts of cocaine possession and theft of property over $1,000 was scheduled to begin today, but a spokesperson for the district attorney’s office said he would instead plead guilty.
He is expected to enter his plea Monday morning in Judge Steve Dozier’s court.
