On June 15, 2006 the Board of Disciplinary Appeals signed a final judgment of disbarment against Houston attorney Randy Dale Jarnigan, 53, SBOT Card No. 10575800. On July 18, 1997, the Board signed an Interlocutory Order suspending Jarnigan from the practice of law pending the appeal of his criminal conviction for engaging in organized criminal activity, an intentional crime as defined in the Texas Rules of Disciplinary Procedure, in Cause No. 727800 styled, The State of Texas v. Randy Dale Jarnigan, in the 337th District Court of Harris County, Texas. Jarnigan was sentenced to 30 years in the custody of the Institutional Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and assessed a fine of $10,000. The Interlocutory Order provided that in the event Jarnigan’s conviction became final, he would be disbarred from the practice of law. On or about June 7, 2002, the Fourteenth Court of Appeals for the State of Texas issued a mandate affirming the judgment in the criminal case.
