A Sussex Borough man who faces over 60 years in prison for previous arrests has pleaded not guilty to his latest charges. Grigory Feldshtein was arrested on July 19 after an undercover narcotics detective caught him distributing marijuana and was charged with several things, including distribution of marijuana under 50 grams.
In 2016 Feldshtein allegedly operated a marijuana-laced candy factory and his trial for those charges was expected to occur at the end of the summer but it was pushed back so plea negotiations could continue.
The 33-year-old is facing 64.5 years in prison if he's convicted on all the charges in both cases. However, his lawyer is looking to get evidence from July arrest suppressed, which could ultimately lead to the case getting dismissed.
Feldshtein's next court date is scheduled for December 17.
