Towson Attorney Faces Drug Charges

Baltimore Grand Jury Indicts Lawyer on Drug Conspiracy Charge

A former public defender and private defense attorney with offices in Towson faces drug-related charges, along with 12 others, after a Baltimore County grand jury returned an indictment in early October, reported The Baltimore Sun. After what authorities termed a “lengthy investigation,” police executed 10 search warrants, seizing a wide range of controlled substances, including heroin, cocaine, marijuana and prescription drugs, such as Hydrocodone, Alprazolam (Xanax), Oxycodone and Suboxone. Officers also seized a number of weapons.

Though police did not provide additional details, sources say that the attorney’s son was also charged. The charges include conspiracy with intent to distribute, as well as possession. The attorney has been a member of the state bar for more than 20 years. The indictment was based on evidence gathered between May and September.
