Three San Diego lawyers disbarred
Gun assault, child pornography, cheating of client involved
Three San Diego lawyers have been disbarred by the State Bar of California, according to the California Bar Journal. Jac Francois Pouliot was disbarred January 9. He was convicted in 2011 of assault with a deadly weapon, but failed to participate in disciplinary proceedings before the bar. In a dispute, he pointed a gun and red laser at neighbors who were having a party, and whose dog he accused of barking incessantly. Pouliot had two loaded guns in his home.
Wade Rowland Sanders was disbarred January 9. He had been convicted in 2009 of possession of child pornography. He had in his computer 600 images of minors engaged in sexual activity. After he was suspended by the bar, he failed to notify clients, opposing counsel and others of the suspension.
Albert Francis Quintrall was disbarred January 30. The bar cited three instances of misconduct, including misappropriating $27,935 of money belonging to a client. He had negotiated that sum on behalf of the client, and was paid, but did not pass the money on to the client, at one point stating that he had reached no settlement, according to the journal.
