BELLAIRE, Mich. (WZZM) - A Grand Rapids attorney faces up to 14 years in prison after being convicted of smuggling drugs to a client in a northern Michigan jail.
John Waters, 43, was found guilty Friday of bringing the prescription painkiller Suboxone into the Antrim County Jail in May 2011.
The inmate testified against her lawyer, claiming he also brought her heroin twice, while she was in the Kent County Jail.
A jury deliberated for two and a half hours, convicting Waters on two counts: Conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance and delivery of a controlled substance. Waters could spend up to seven years in prison on each count. A sentencing date has yet to be set.
