Illinois Supreme Court disbars Quincy attorney

A Quincy attorney has been disbarred from practicing law in Illinois.

John Devin Cashman is accused of stealing about $200,000 from his clients' bank accounts without permission.

The Illinois Attorney Registration and Discipline Commission served the complaint last December.

The ruling stated that Cashman engaged in misconduct including conversion of funds, offering evidence that he knew was false, fraud and other violations of the Illinois rules of professional conduct.

Cashman now faces criminal charges in Adams County.
