NEW LONDON,Conn. (AP) — A Norwich lawyer says he’ll pay a $150 fine to resolve an infraction over a bag of marijuana police say he left on a bench in the New London Judicial District courthouse.
Vincent J. Fazzone told The Day he’ll pay the fine and wants to put the matter behind him.
His paralegal, Holly McGregor, said Fazzone took the bag from a client Tuesday to confront the client’s child who was its owner.
She said the 47-year-old Fazzone put the marijuana in his pocket and forgot about it. She says it dropped out when he stood up.
Fazzone was not detained. The infraction is punishable with a fine and is not a crime resulting in an arrest.
