A Baltimore County grand jury has indicted a defense attorney based in Towson and 12 other people on drug-related charges, court records show.
Jill Swerdlin, 46, who has served as a private defense attorney for the past five years, and previously as a public defender, is charged with one count of conspiracy with intent to distribute and possession.
She and 12 others were arrested when Baltimore County police executed 10 search warrants on Monday after a "lengthy investigation," said police spokeswoman Elise Armacost.
Among those charged was Swerdlin's 20-year-old son, Brett, who faces the same charges as his mother.
Police seized prescription pills such as Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Alprazolam (Xanax) and Suboxone, Armacost said. Also recovered by officers was "various amounts" of heroin, cocaine, marijuana and other paraphernalia, and 10 long guns, Armacost said.
