SANTA ANA ( — Drug-related charges were dropped Friday against former Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer, wife of state Treasurer Bill Lockyer, after prosecutors determined she had completed an addiction-treatment program.

Lockyer had been charged with a felony count of possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor counts of being under the influence of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and child endangerment.

On Aug. 28, 2012, prosecutors say police responded to a home in Orange, where Lockyer and her 9-year-old son were staying with family, to investigate a report of drugs in the house. Police found drugs in the room she was sharing with her son and when officers contacted her, she appeared to be under the influence of methamphetamine, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors say Lockyer completed a nearly yearlong residential rehabilitation program, followed by four months of outpatient treatment.

She and Bill Lockyer were estranged, but have since reunited.
