On July 15, 2014, at approximately 2:15pm, the Albany County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at the defendant’s residence on Besch Avenue in the City of Albany. The search uncovered about 60 packages of heroin and $626 in cash.
At the time of this incident, MCNEIL was serving a term of felony probation and Drug Court stemming from a previous conviction for heroin possession with the intent to sell.
MCNEIL faces 6 years in State Prison, to be followed by 3 years of Post-Release Supervision, for the current drug charge, in addition to 6 years in State Prison for the Drug Court violation and Violation of Probation, when sentenced on October 16, 2014.
The guilty plea today also satisfies two uncharged heroin sales attributed to this defendant.
Assistant District Attorney Mathew Hauf of the Major Offenses Unit is handling the prosecution of this case.
