SAN RAFAEL — A former Marin County attorney convicted previously for practicing law without a license was arrested again after failing to show up to serve three-month sentence for another crime.

The Marin Independent Journal reported ( that 59-year-old Stephen Jaycox of Santa Rosa appeared in court Thursday as prosecutors sought an additional 30-day sentence.

Jaycox was convicted for practicing law after accepting $4,000 in attorneys' fees from three clients, and appearing in a San Francisco courtroom with no license.

He received home detention after pleading guilty, but was later arrested again for driving while his license was suspended for a DUI.

Jaycox failed to show up for his jail sentence, prompting his latest arrest.

He is being held without bail at the Marin County Jail.
