Former ethics commissioner doesn't provide info to state bar

No proof of attendance at abstinence self-helf group

Krishna Haney, a former commissioner of the San Diego Ethics Commission appointed by ex-Mayor Jerry Sanders, got in trouble with the California State Bar last year. In 2011, her car struck an emergency call box. She pleaded with a witness not to call 911, because she did not have money for health or auto insurance and didn't want her car seized. She admitted she had taken Clonezepam, Cymbalta, Flexeril, and hydrocodone that day and ultimately pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of hydrocodone. In 2013, the bar declared that she must submit reports to the Office of Probation, providing results of lab tests and proving her attendance at abstinence-based self-help meetings.

She is still member of the bar and permitted to practice law in California, but her report on the bar website shows that she failed to provide blood and/or urine samples due in July, August, November, and December of 2013, and January through June of 2014. In addition, she failed to submit a quarterly report due in January of 2014. Also, she failed to provide to the Office of Probation proof of attendance at two meetings per month of abstinence-based self-help groups in April, May and June of 2014.

It is difficult to know where to begin on this one. I can only hope she is getting some help.

eastlaker: It certainly appears that she needs help. Best, Don Bauder

The average person would be in jail by now for not meeting terms of her probation.

Dec. 28, 2014

Dennis: The probation was imposed by the California State Bar, not any government. Best, Don Bauder

Has the state AG filed any of the reports she has fallen behind on yet?

Dec. 28, 2014

aardvark: To my knowledge, the AG hasn't entered into this. Best, Don Bauder

Don: I was just trying to make a comparison. Nothing has happened to Kamala Harris, even though she has been very late with required biennial reports on the activities of her office. Probably not a good comparison.

Dec. 28, 2014

aardvark: Kamala is close to the guv. She doesn't have to worry. Best, Don Bauder

A former commissioner of the San Diego Ethics Commission you say. The irony abounds.

Dec. 28, 2014

MichaelValentine: She was named by Jerry Sanders. Best, Don Bauder

So, does that make it more or less ironic? Or is this an ironic question?

Dec. 29, 2014

MichaelValentine: Less ironic. Best, Don Bauder

Dec. 29, 2014

Scott Blumen: The state bar is not known for rapid action, which appears to be what she needs -- or needed at one time. Best, Don Bauder

Dec. 28, 2014

Barbara Stevens: She is still eligible to practice law. Best, Don Bauder
