A Beverly Hills-based attorney pleaded not guilty on Monday to charges that he brought heroin to the Criminal Courts Building in downtown. 48-year-old Michael Inman was allegedly caught with the substance last month when a drug-sniffing dog alerted authorities to him while in a secure area "to visit two defendants he was representing in a a burglary and receiving stolen property case," according to the Beverly Hills Courier. He apparently had 14.25 grams of heroin on him. If found guilty, he could face up to five years in jail.
