PANAMA CITY — As former chief assistant State Attorney Greg Wilson awaits his sentencing for helping two Bay County Jail inmates pass communications, The Florida Supreme Court has effectively suspended his license to practice law.
The order was handed down Thursday after The Florida Bar filed a notice of determination of guilt against Wilson. He was found guilty as charged Sept. 19 of possession of contraband in a detention facility for helping the inmates — sisters Clista Robbins and Christy White — pass a “kite,” or folded piece of paper, inside the jail. Wilson then lied to investigators about his role in the exchange, for which he was convicted of perjury in an unofficial proceeding. He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 5 by Circuit Judge Michael Overstreet.
