NORWICH – Stephen A. Reilly, 22, of Norwich, appeared in Chenango County Court from the Chenango County Correctional Facility for a hearing on judicial diversion.
Reilly was previously arrested for the sale of heroin following an unattended death he was linked to, occurring on Aug. 5, 2015.
Following the investigation of the unattended death, Reilly was charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree, a class B felony.
It is alleged that Reilly, on Aug. 3, 2015, sold ten packets of heroin in the Town of Plymouth to the now-deceased victim.
Reilly was originally arraigned in the Town of North Norwich Court and remanded to the CCCF in lieu of $30,000 bail.
Reilly was present in court before Chenango County Court Judge Frank B. Revoir Jr., with his attorney Benjamin Bergman.
District Attorney Joseph A. McBride was present on behalf of the people.
Revoir stated for the record that per assessment Reilly was eligible for judicial diversion, a motion McBride immediately objected.
Reilly was un-handcuffed for the duration of his hearing.
Jim Everard, Chenango County Drug Court Coordinator, was sworn in as the first individual to take the stand on the matter.
