FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities will not recommend charges be filed against a central California criminal defense attorney who was under investigation after allegedly dropping off a box of contraband to a client at the Fresno County Jail.

The Fresno Bee reported Monday (https://bit.ly/2lLAJKe ) that Fresno County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Tony Botti says attorney Tony Capozzi was cooperative when he met with detectives for an interview and that authorities will not recommend charges.

Capozzi came under investigation after an Oct. 11 incident where the attorney met with an inmate with a cardboard box filled with documents. Capozzi left the box with his client. It was later discovered that the box had a hidden compartment containing cellphones and over-the-counter medication.

Capozzi said Monday he was pleased with the investigation’s conclusion.
