Phoenix Criminal Defense Attorney
David De Costa was
arrested on Friday
by Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Deputies after he allegedly transfered
heroin and methamphetamine
to a in-custody defendant during a hearing in the Maricopa County Superior Court. The inmate's 19 year old girl friend is alleged to have provided sexual favors to Mr. De Costa in exchange for the drug transfers.
The inmate to whom Mr. De Costa allegedly gave the drugs is involved in another investigation involving another Phoenix Criminal Defense Lawyer - Jason Keller - who recently plead guilty to promoting prison contraband and is expected to be sentenced to prison in connection with a similar offense.
Mr. De Costa is a former prosecutor and reportedly at veteran of the United States Army. He apparently was already on probation with State Bar of Arizona for an unrelated matter at the time of his recent arrest.
