It is “distinctly possible” that Lamar will be prosecuted for drugs, according to Sheriff Sharon Wehrly, who spoke with TMZ before the test results came out.
Also prior to the test results, HollywoodLife spoke EXCLUSIVELY with a criminal defense attorney, James E. Silverstein, to find out how at-risk Lamar was of being prosecuted. “While each state has varying anti-narcotic laws, it is almost always unlawful to have illicit narcotics, such as cocaine in one’s system,” he said.
The reported findings of the drug test come just one day after the owner of the Love Ranch brothel, where Lamar was found unconscious, Dennis Hof, spoke out claiming the women working at the brothel had nothing to do with whether Lamar did any drugs. “None of the prostitutes who work for him have a history with drugs…and they wouldn’t be working at the ranch if they did,” claims TMZ, who spoke with Dennis. Dennis also said that he requires each of his employees endure a background check, and he refuses to hire any woman with a drug-related incident in their past. Finally, Dennis said that, if drugs were present during Lamar’s stay, he brought them there himself.
HollywoodLife has reached out to both police and Sunrise Hospital for comment.
