Brunswick Man Found Guilty of Drug Trafficking, Drug Possession

Carl J. Curry, 39, of Brunswick, Ohio, was found guilty by a jury of two drug related charged in Judge Kimbler's courtroom after a two day jury trial. The State of Ohio had charged Mr. Curry with both drug trafficking and drug possession based on an alleged sale of cocaine to a confidential informant at a bar in Brunswick on March 24, 2010.

The charges, which are both fifth degree felonies, are considered to be allied offenses of similar import. This means that while Mr. Curry can be charged with both offenses and convicted of both offenses, he can only be sentenced on one of the charges.

After the jury had been discharged, the State of Ohio moved for a revocation of Mr. Curry's bond. Judge Kimbler denied the motion for a bond revocation, noting that Mr. Curry had always appeared for court hearings. Judge Kimbler ordered a pre-sentence investigation and set May 12, 2011 as the date for Mr. Curry's sentencing.
