MACON, Ga. (AP) -- A Macon attorney is giving up his law license after reaching a plea deal in a methamphetamine case.
Arjun Kapoor was sentenced Friday to 10 years on probation. That will include up to six months in a probation detention center. Kapoor pleaded guilty to one count of selling methamphetamine, and prosecutors dropped two other counts. He must also surrender his law license.
The Macon Telegraph reported that Superior Court Judge Edgar Ennis Jr. told Kapoor that the case reflected poorly on him and on the law profession. Kapoor apologized to the judge.
According to the plea agreement read in court, a police informant was recorded talking to Kapoor in 2009 about getting drugs. Kapoor delivered a small bag containing less than an ounce of methamphetamine and received $40.
