A jury convicted a Manchester, New Hampshire man of drug trafficking this week. Police came to the man’s house after he was shot during a home invasion. When police asked to search the premises, the man refused. Police obtained a search warrant and found 5.5 ounces of crack cocaine, as well as $600 cash in a safe within the home.
The man represented himself in court, remarking in his opening statement to the jury that the police would not be able to prove that he possessed any drugs. Ultimately, that same jury convicted the man on the charge of trafficking crack cocaine. Due to the fact that he has prior possession charges, the man could face a maximum penalty of life in prison.
