Fayette County Lawyer Suspended

Terry D. Dycus of Somerville was suspended Nov. 27 by order of the Tennessee Supreme Court for one year, consisting of a 45-day active suspension and the remainder to be served on probation. He was also ordered to perform 10 hours of pro bono services and complete additional continuing legal education credits during his probation. Dycus admitted engaging in conversation of a sexual nature with two criminal defendants who were being prosecuted by the District Attorney's office for which he also worked. He was not the Assistant District Attorney assigned to those cases; however, he admitted that both defendants were represented by counsel and that he did not have permission to speak with either defendant.
