Former Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Locker was charged with one felony count of drug possession, two misdemeanor counts of drug abuse and one misdemeanor count of child abuse after being found with methamphetamine at a home in Orange County.
Lockyer, the estranged wife of state Treasurer Bill Lockyer, was arrested by the Orange Police Department on Aug. 28, after law enforcement received a call from a tipster saying she was in possession of drugs. Lockyer was staying with her 9-year-old son at a relative’s home in Orange on Aug. 28 when police received reports that she was in possession of drugs there.
Officers found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, including tubular aluminum foil with a burned end, according to the criminal complaint. Police said Lockyer showed “objective signs of being under the influence of a drug.
Lockyer’s criminal defense attorney said “Nadia recognizes her error, and she intends to take all appropriate action to regain her health.” The criminal defense attorney also objected to the child abuse charges saying “there was no evidence of any such abuse,” but Judge Gerald Johnston allowed the abuse charge to stand.
Nadia Lockyer is a native of Orange County and a former trustee for the Santa Ana Board of Education, elected in 1998.
