By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A Lee County Attorney's law license has been suspended after he failed to show up for a hearing and didn't ask to be formally excused.

The Georgia Supreme Court issued the order suspending attorney Craig Mathis Monday morning. Mathis was also found in contempt of court for failing to show up for the hearing.

He admitted to violating state bar rules when he didn't properly represent a client in a May 2007 child custody case. In an unrelated case, Mathis was indicted on drug possession and distribution charges for illegal possessing Xanax and Adderall.
