JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - An attorney representing a man accused of kidnapping and killing Holly Bobo has been suspended from practicing law by the Tennessee Supreme Court.

John Herbison will be suspended for 60 days and then placed on probation for 16 months because of three complaints alleging misconduct, according to state documents.

The Jackson Sun reports (https://bit.ly/1AyBMRf ) Herbison’s suspension begins on Nov. 30. The suspension is not related to his client Jason Autry, a defendant in the Bobo murder case or the case against Brandon Vandenburg, a former Vanderbilt football player charged with rape. Herbison is part of the defense team representing Vandenburg.

State documents say Herbison failed to communicate with two clients in 2011 and didn’t file an appeal for a third. He will also have to pay about $3,900 in fines.
