The Arkansas Supreme Court has suspended the law license of Hot Springs attorney Andrea Davis, with whom Attorney General Dustin McDaniel admitted having an extramarital relationship.

A lawyer for Davis said Friday she won't contest the suspension for the time being and that her first priority is getting "her life in order."

Arkansas Business reports the interim suspension order didn't list a reason why she was disciplined.

Court records show Davis is charged in Garland County with two counts of felony theft by receiving and five misdemeanor counts of contempt of court.

The suspension could run from 90 days to indefinitely. In 2012,

McDaniel admitted having an inappropriate relationship with Davis, prompting him to drop out of the governor race.
