Lauderdale attorney charged with smuggling cocaine soaked docs into prison

A Fort Lauderdale attorney has been charged with drug offenses after he tried to smuggle cocaine-soaked documents, disguised as legal papers, into a local jail.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says David Casals, a criminal defense attorney who practices in Palm Beach and Broward counties, was charged with trafficking in cocaine, delivery of cocaine, and introduction of contraband into a county facility after “an extensive investigation, testing, interviews and search warrants."

Casals turned himself in to the county jail on Friday and was released on $58,000 bond.

Casals has been practicing law in Palm Beach and Broward counties since 2000.

According to his Florida Bar profile, Casals is a 1999 graduate of Nova Southeastern University's Shepard Broad School of Law.
