The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said Columbus attorney Philip Cramer was meeting with his client at a county jail annex Wednesday when deputies saw Cramer give the prisoner something.

Cramer, 74, was arrested after deputies searched inmate Joseph Frowine and said they found prescription drugs, including oxycodone. Sheriff’s detectives said Cramer admitted bringing oxycodone into the jail to give to Frowine.

Both men were charged with illegal conveyance of oxycodone into a detention facility.
