Blount County attorney Charles Alphonso Carpenter was publicly censured by the Board of Professional Responsibility on April 11. Carpenter was found to have neglected his clients’ cases in two separate matters. Carpenter failed to respond to calls, emails and text messages from clients, and even changed offices without notifying a client. Carpenter also failed to appear for court hearings and depositions. The censure does not affect his ability to practice law.
