Former federal prosecutor G. Paul Howes, now a partner in the San Diego office of Lerach Coughlin Stoia Geller Rudman & Robbins, faces serious ethics charges from the D.C. Bar Counsel that could trigger sanctions -- including disbarment. The charges stem from Howes' improper disbursement of more than $140,000 in federal witness vouchers to 132 people during several high-profile drug trials while he was a prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney's Office in the District in the 1990s.
