2/7/2013 4:25:00 PM Connecticut man avoids prison on cannabis charges
PRINCETON — A Connecticut man avoided prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to a reduced felony charge of cannabis possession. Adam C. Solon, 25, of Hartford pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, a Class 4 felony carrying 1-3 years in prison, but with a possibility of probation. In exchange for his plea Solon was sentenced to 2 years’ probation plus fines and costs totaling 25,000. The charge was reduced from a Class 1 felony carrying 4-15 years. Solon was charged following a traffic stop on Oct. 12, 2011, on Interstate 80 near Spring Valley, during which state police and a La Salle police K-9 unit seized duffel bags containing packaged cannabis. At the time of the arrest, state police listed the seizure at 22 pounds. However, Solon was charged for a quantity measured at less than 11 pounds, and Wednesday’s plea indicated a quantity more than 30 grams. One of the considerations is Solon had no criminal history. Solon, represented by defense attorney Stephen Komie, declined an opportunity to address Judge Marc Bernabei.
