No unfortunately that is not a deductible expense. You cannot really deduct any expenses at all in connection with legal/criminal issues, including any attorney fees or court costs you may have to pay.
Sorry for the bad news because I am sure you were hoping this was a deductible expense,but it is not under current regulations.
