LANSING — An attorney took part in “an elaborate scheme” to smuggle drugs into Lakeland Correctional Facility in Coldwater, according to charging documents obtained Monday by the Free Press.

Eric H. Clark, 69, who has a Livonia office and lives in Bloomfield Township, was arraigned Friday on charges of bringing contraband into a prison, which is a five-year felony; and possessing less than 25 grams of a controlled substance, which is a four-year felony, records show.

Clark was caught trying to smuggle 5-Fluoro ADB, a potent synthetic cannabinoid, according to a complaint filed in the district court in Coldwater. The lawyer was paid $1,500 to make two drug deliveries, the complaint alleges.
