Attorney Pleads Guilty to Smuggling Contraband to Her Jailed Fiance

A Michigan lawyer has pleaded guilty to possession of drugs and other contraband after smuggling six Xanax pills and tobacco to her jailed fiance.

Nina Backon admitted to the offense when suspicious authorities searched her boyfriend, Eric Edward Wilamowski, and found the items, reports the Detroit News. She had initially represented herself as his lawyer to arrange the visit.

Her lawyer says he hopes she will get probation in the Oakland Circuit Court case.
