Attorney Fletcher Long disbarred

A criminal defense attorney found guilty of a criminal offense has had his law license yanked by the Tennessee Supreme Court.

It’s an expected move given attorney Fletcher Long and another attorney, Carrie Gasaway, were convicted of extortion in Clarksville just four months ago. They agreed to forfeit their law licenses in exchange for a sentence of probation instead of prison.

You know Long’s name because of the work he’s done in high-profile cases in Tennessee: He defended Brandon Vandenburg, one of four former Vanderbilt University football players accused of rape; the so-called Wooded Rapist, who was connected to as many as 13 victims; and one of the Memphis men accused of killing Holly Bobo, whose partial remains were found three years after she disappeared.

Long declined to comment, saying via text message he was excited about his new gig: a radio talk show.

A release from the Board of Professional Responsibility, which regulates and investigates attorney misconduct, said Long consented to the disbarment. It also says there were five other complaints pending before the BPR with similar allegations.

Gasaway is still going through the disciplinary process in regards to her law license.
