JACKSON, Tenn.- The Tennessee Supreme Court has announced the one-year suspension of a Jackson attorney. However, that penalty was probated on certain conditions.

According to a release form the court, Angela Joy Hopson can continue to practice law as long as she has a monitor and pays the expenses incurred by the Board of Responsibility. The decision was based on two complaints of misconduct.

Investigators said in one case, Hopson failed to properly communicate with a client after a conviction. In the other instance, she was found to have failed to file proper reports with the appeals court.
