(Richmond, IN)--Former Richmond attorney Tom Kemp was sentenced to six months in jail Wednesday, despite the recommendations of both prosecutors and defense attorneys.  Kemp accepted a plea deal after taking money from clients but not providing legal services in return.  He will also have to pay $32,000 in restitution to victims.  Kemp has been working as a truck driver for Astral Industries.  Deputy Prosecutor Teresa Ashcraft wanted only a suspended sentence.  She pointed out that another former Richmond attorney, Chuck Hyde, did the same thing but to a greater degree and did no jail time.  Special Judge Steven Cox said that was irrelevant and gave Kemp six months.
