Attorney arrested on suspicion of bringing drugs to jailed client

Richard Winton (Los Angeles Times) | October 21, 2011

Acting on jailhouse intelligence, Los Angeles sheriff’s deputies Friday arrested an attorney they say tried to smuggle 26 balloons of heroin and methamphetamine to a gang member in custody at the downtown courthouse.

Attorney Kenneth Markman, 47, was arrested on the 11th floor of the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center when he tried to meet with his client in lockup. Deputies used a drug-sniffing dog to locate the narcotics wrapped in tape, said Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker.

In addition to the balloons, Parker said, deputies recovered small hypodermic needles and marijuana in a taped package.

Markman had arranged a 10 a.m. attorney-client interview at the courthouse. While Markman was waiting alone in the attorney room before meeting with his client, the dog “alerted” on Markman’s legal briefcase and person, Parker said.
