Defense Attorney Arrested For Taking Guns, Drugs As Payment
A criminal defense attorney in San Bernardino, California has been arrested on suspicion that he took drugs and guns as compensation for his legal services.
Gary Stephen Redinger, 59, was booked into the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance, furnishing narcotics, and maintaining a narcotics residence. Redinger posted $50,000 for bail and will defend himself if he is charged.
“They came to the house with a search warrant, and I had to let them in,” Redinger said. “I deny that I was involved in it. We’ll just have to see where it goes.”
Deputies who searched Mr. Redinger’s home claim to have found large amounts methamphetamines and over 30 guns.
Redinger’s son, Patrick Redinger, was also arrested on suspicion of possessing ammunition. Because Patrick Redinger has been convicted on weapons charges, possessing ammunition is a violation.
“I believe it all is a derivative of my son’s arrest,” Gary Redinger said.
