A Pacifica lawyer visiting Maguire Correctional Facility for the purpose of dispensing legal counsel is accused of taking attorney-client privilege to another level.
Erika Jordening also dispensed drugs during a Tuesday evening visit with her client, authorities said.
The 43-year-old attorney was arrested on suspicion of bringing contraband to a jail facility and conspiracy, sheriff's deputies said.
Aaron Rauls, the client she was visiting, is also 43 of Pacifica, sheriff's deputies said.
A San Mateo County Sheriff's Department statement reporting the arrest said the drugs Jordening allegedly brought her client were in pill form.
The statement does not indicate what type of drug she's accused of providing her client, or whether it was an illegal substance.
Jordening is being held in county jail on $70,000 bail.
