Austin Solo’s License in Jeopardy After Pleading Guilty to Heroin Possession

The Commission for Lawyer Discipline is seeking to take the law license of an Austin solo practitioner who was indicted in a murder-for-hire plot, but instead received deferred adjudication for possessing and intending to deal heroin.

In a petition for compulsory discipline, the commission noted that James N. Walker was indicted in Travis County on May 20, 2016, for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance in penalty group 1 in an amount between 4 and 200 grams. It’s a first-degree felony that could bring up to 99 years in prison and a fine up to $10,000.
