This gives the term “a slap on the wrist” a totally different meaning.
According to confirmed reports, a Toms River, New Jersey man was originally arrested with 80 sleeves of heroin and $740 in cash. An additional search of his storage uncovered a whopping 83 bricks of heroin, which averages out to about 4,200 doses with a worth of $25K on the street.
Toms River resident Gary Fox dodged prison and managed to be accepted into Ocean County’s Drug Court program by pleading guilty to two counts of third degree possession with intent to distribute and a simple possession charge. Fox already had two prior drug convictions on his rap sheet before this arrest.
If Fox does not complete the drug program, he does face a ten year prison sentence with parole eligibility in three and a half years.
According to the local prosecutor’s office, Fox’s sentence was not the result of a plea deal.
