WHAS11.com reports that last month, an inmate at Bullitt County Detention Centre in Louisville was busted for drug possession (for followers of the Folklaw favourite Oz, a gritty American TV prison drama, the notion of prisoners being busted for drugs is no surprise).

When asked how he got the drugs, the prisoner said that his lawyer, Michael Wade, gave them to him. By coincidence, Wade was due to visit the prisoner that very day. On arrival at the prison, Wade was searched and it is alleged that he was found with heroin in his pocket.

He was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance and two counts of contraband promotion. He was remanded in (you guessed it!) the Bullitt County Detention Centre.

Folklaw knows that lawyers should be close to their clients, but Wade has probably crossed the line.
