Drug charges dropped for Calif treasurer's wife
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) -- An Orange County judge has dismissed drug charges against the wife of state Treasurer Bill Lockyer.
Superior Court spokeswoman Gwen Vieau says charges against Nadia Lockyer were dropped Friday at the request of prosecutors. They included possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, being under the influence and child endangerment.
Nadia Lockyer, a former Bay Area supervisor, was arrested in 2012. Authorities say she appeared to be high on methamphetamines and drugs were found in an Orange County home she was sharing with her 9-year-old son.
Her husband filed divorce papers last year but later withdrew them, saying Lockyer had made progress in a treatment program.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1kHF7q9) says Lockyer has agreed to attend a drug diversion program.
A message for her attorney, Allan Stokke (STOK'-ee), wasn't immediately returned.
