From the Associated Press:

The Kentucky Supreme Court has permanently disbarred a Lexington attorney who is serving probation for theft of his clients' money.

The justices on Thursday granted 37-year-old Clifford Alan Branham's request to resign from the Kentucky Bar Association under the terms of permanent disbarment.

Branham previously pleaded guilty to four counts of theft by failure to make required disposition of property. He admitted to taking money, but not doing work for four of his clients. The court also ordered him to pay $241,000 in restitution.

A judge sentenced Branham to eight years in prison, but he was released on shock probation. Branham will remain on probation through March 2019.
