Yesterday Robert E. Brown, PC represented a client charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 2 degree -- an A-II felony for possession of Ketamine or Special K, which carries years in jail, extended parole and virtually certain deportation (he has a green card). It appears NYPD intercepted a very large shipment and did a "controlled delivery" meaning they dressed as a DHL delivery man and delivered the package. They asked my client who was a few doors from the address if he knew the person the package was addressed to. He said he did. The undercover asked him to call the recipient and my client called him to come down. The recipient came down with a friend and signed for the package. The recipient, his friend and my client who was outside in front of a neighboring building were all arrested and charged with A-II Felonies. My client didn't sign for the package and never possessed it. He was charged with acting in concert possession. I advised him to testify in the Grand Jury and tell his story.
After he testified, the Grand Jury voted NO TRUE BILL which means all of the charges against him are dismissed and sealed and he got to go home last night.
