A former Manhattan assistant district attorney who used to bust drug dealers all throughout the borough has been indicted on felony drug charges, after police say that he was selling marijuana through a delivery service.
David Leung, 44, returned to the courthouse he had once prosecuted in last month — but this time, as a defendant.
Leung was arrested on September 27th after allegedly handing an envelope containing marijuana to an undercover officer.
Leung worked under Robert Morgenthau from 1993 to 2004 as an assistant district attorney.
He was found in possession carrying seven bags of marijuana containing more than eight ounces in his car, according to the police report.
Leung remains free without bail with his indictment’s arraignment scheduled for February 19th.
