Former Alameda County supervisor Nadia Lockyer is scheduled to be in Orange County court next Monday for a pre-trial hearing after being arrested last week on suspicion on child endangerment and drug use.

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, according to officials.

When police went to a home where Lockyer was living with her 9-year-old son, police found she was in possession of methamphetamine and saw "objective signs" that she was under the influence of the drug, officials said.

Her attorney, Allan Stokke of Newport Beach, told Bay Area newspapers Wednesday, "Nadia recognizes her error, and she intends to take all appropriate action to regain her health."

Lockyer resigned from the Alameda County Board of Supervisors this year after a months-long drug and sex scandal that included a confession to spending time in rehab and increasingly dramatic allegations about her ex-boyfriend and her husband.

Nadia Lockyer is a native of Orange County and a former trustee for the Santa Ana Board of Education, elected in 1998.
