Chicago attorney Nathan Billmaier, 35, was convicted of smuggling drugs and paraphernalia in legal briefs and materials to a client, Donald Jordan, in prison. He is the second attorney in Chicago to be nailed for smuggling in contraband.
Billmaier was convicted of six such incidents. He was arrested with nine flattened tinfoil packages that contained 4 ounces of marijuana, 4 ounces of contraband tobacco, 6 Ecstasy tablets and 40 matches.
The girlfriend of prisoner Donald Jordan (who is in for murder, parole violation, and prison contraband) put together the packages for Billmaier who was given $500-$700 per delivery. He made only $3,600 in return for destroying his career and his life.
Remarkably, he is not the only attorney with loaded briefs, here.
