Stamp Of Disapproval

An attorney who sent a letter containing contraband to an incarcerated inmate in the Maryland Correctional Institute at Hagerstown was suspended for one year by the Maryland Court of Appeals.

The contraband did not consist of illegal drugs or the tools for an escape. Rather, the letter (which had a return address that identified the sender as an "Attorney at Law") contained postage stamps and correspondence from another incarcerated inmate.

The attorney admitted that she was aware that the correspondence was contraband but stated that she was assisting the client with a "literary enterprise." (Mike Frisch)
