Legal Aid staffer posing as lawyer busted smuggling weed into Rikers, sources say

A Legal Aid Society staffer trying to pass herself off as a lawyer was busted trying to smuggle weed and tobacco to a Rikers Island inmate accused of attempted murder, sources told The Post.

Tatyana King, who describes herself on her LinkedIn page as an “incoming staff attorney” for New York’s largest legal aid nonprofit, was arrested around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the jail while trying to visit detainee Shyanne Patterson, according to law-enforcement sources.

She was busted after a drug-sniffing dog at the main gate alerted guards.

Correction officers searched her belongings and uncovered bags of marijuana and tobacco.

King was charged with illegal possession of contraband in a prison, authorities said.

Meh.  She's black.  She'll be allowed to plead to something minor, will do some probation, and will be admitted to the NY bar in record time thereafter.

Black Privilege, baby.
