The state Appellate Division, Fourth Department, has formally disbarred Syracuse attorney and Watertown native Martin J. Rothschild.

Mr. Rothschild, a 1971 graduate of Watertown High School, was convicted April 4 in Onondaga County Court of promoting a sexual performance by a child and was sentenced Nov. 13 to three years in state prison.

As part of a plea agreement, he had agreed to surrender his law license, but in a ruling released Friday, the Rochester-based appellate court’s grievance committee officially ordered him disbarred and his name stricken from the roll of attorneys because of the felony conviction.
