A Man Named Ice

A former assistant district attorney convicted of marijuana distribution has consented to disbarment in Pennsylvania.

The Penn State Daily Collegian reported on the conviction:

Former Centre County Assistant District Attorney Steve Sloane pleaded guilty to five felonies last Thursday related to charges of distributing marijuana, a spokesperson from the Attorney General’s Office said.

Sloane pleaded guilty to three counts of possession with intent to deliver, one count of conspiracy and one count of criminal use of a communication facility. He will be sentenced Sep. 6, the spokesperson said.

 

Sloane’s charges came after the Modesto Police Department in Modesto, Calif. intercepted a package on Oct. 26, 2011. The package — which was from a man named Steven Ice, and was addressed to Sloane at his law office — included two ounces of marijuana, 20 hydrocodone pills, as well as a receipt given to the person who shipped it for $250, as previously reported.

Police further discovered text messages exchanged between Sloane and Ice that showed Ice was sending drugs to Sloane in packages.
