Roane County lawyer permanently disbarred
Published August 8, 2023; 5:21 p.m.

ROANE COUNTY - Effective August 8, 2023, the Supreme Court of Tennessee permanently disbarred Kent Lowery Booher from the practice of law and ordered him to pay all costs incurred to the Board of Professional Responsibility.

After a hearing upon the disciplinary petition, a Hearing Panel determined by a preponderance of the evidence that Mr. Booher’s felony conviction of illegal sexual contact with minor children, intent to distribute visual media relative to that illegal conduct, and violation of sex offender registry, of which Mr. Booher was a member, constituted serious criminal conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation; was prejudicial to the administration of justice and reflected adversely on his honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness as a lawyer.

The Panel found Mr. Booher’s conduct violated Tennessee Rules of Professional Conduct 8.4(a), (b), (c), and (d) (misconduct) and warranted permanent disbarment.
