JACKSON, Miss. – The Mississippi Supreme Court on Thursday disbarred a Gulf Coast attorney sentenced in January to 26 months in prison for bankruptcy embezzlement.

William S. Boyd III of Gulfport pleaded guilty last fall in federal court in Gulfport, admitting he embezzled $163,500 from clients he represented in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, according to federal prosecutors.

U.S. District Judge Walter J. Gex III also sentenced Boyd to three years supervised release and ordered him to pay restitution of $395,500.
