Former Sylvester attorney Barbara W. Willis has been disbarred from practicing law in Georgia, according to a release from the Georgia Supreme Court, Monday.
Last December, WALB reported that Willis had been released from jail on bond after her indictment on charges she stole from the estates of deceased people.
Willis was indicted in November of 2013 on two counts of theft by taking.
She was arrested, booked and released on $7,500 bond.
The charges stem from Willis' handling of the estates of Charlie and I. P. Porter, and Charlie Richey, Sr.
Willis graduated from Mercer University Law School, and was admitted to the Georgia Bar in 1991.
