The State Supreme Court is going to decide whether disciplinary action is in order for a mid-Missouri prosecutor accused of inappropriate behavior in his dealings with a judge. Back when he was an assistant prosecutor, Cole County Prosecuting Attorney Bill Tackett met with a Callaway County judge to discuss a work-related issue. Tackett then brought up the issue of his brother and another man having been given speeding tickets. The tickets were “fixed” and Sharon Weedin, with the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel, tells the judges Tackett took improper advantage of an opportunity. Former Supreme Court Judge “Chip” Robertson, the attorney representing Tackett, says there was never any intention on the part of his client to deliberately deceive. The Chief Disciplinary Counsel wants Tackett’s law license disciplined. He could conceivably be disbarred.
