Prosecutor accused of taking drugs for leniency

San Francisco prosecutor Robert Roland had a taste for party drugs and a knack for helping people out of scrapes with the law, according to his alleged associates in a federal drug case. According tothis article.

Roland, who was hired in July 2000, was arrested Friday in San Francisco and was released on a $200,000 bond. He appeared briefly in federal court, where the indictment was unsealed.

The indictment accuses him of assisting a man named Robert Nyberg, who was a friend of one of Roland's high school friends, Eric Shaw.
