Attorney Charged for Bringing Heroin to Clients in Jail
A 48-year-old Beverly Hills-based defense lawyer who allegedly tried to smuggle heroin into a secure area of the downtown courthouse was charged on June 17 with bringing drugs into a jail.
Michael Inman has been charged with four felony counts, including possession of a controlled substance in a jail, and possession for sale of a controlled substance. Inman was found in possession of 14.25 grams of heroin.
The attorney was arrested on June 15 after he entered the secure lock-up section of the jail to visit two defendants he was representing in a burglary and receiving stolen property case.
Sheriff’s deputies, using a dog used to check for narcotics, allegedly discovered a baggie of heroin in a secure area where only Inman was waiting.
If convicted, he faces up to five years in state prison.
