NEW BERLIN – The owner of a house that police crashed through in a late-June drug raid admitted in court to being a dealer and is looking at serving probation and attending treatment court.
Police originally charged the two people residing at the house, 24-year-old Adam Daring of 43 North Main St., New Berlin and his girlfriend, 21-year-old Courtney L. Champlin, with the highest level crimes in the case which included multiple felonies.
District Attorney Joseph McBride said Champlin played a more minor role in the drug activity and her case has been reduced to a misdemeanor charge and returned to the lower, Town of New Berlin Court.
Daring pleaded guilty to the top charge against him, third degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a class B felony, in a plea arrangement with prosecutors. The charge required Daring to admit he had “an intent to sell” the illegal substances, said McBride.
