TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Tacoma lawyer has been accused of having sex with an inmate and bringing drugs for others while visiting Pierce County Jail.

The News Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/iZJuhw ) William Stoddard Jr. pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of introducing contraband, unlawfully delivering a controlled substance and conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance.

An inmate who visited with Stoddard 19 times between March 2015 and February 2016 says the two had sex and that in exchange Stoddard provided money to the inmate.

Court documents say Stoddard also brought butane hash oil to the inmate, who would deliver it to other prisoners who had earlier met with Stoddard to give him money.

The 68-year-old’s bail was set at $7,500 and his privileges to visit the jail as a lawyer have been suspended.
