Zachary Parker, the man that allegedly stole $11,000 in video equipment Kennedy High School and is at the center of a police scandal, plead guilty to outstanding drug charges, according to Newsday.
Parker's attorney, Marc Gann of Mineola, said if his client successfully completes a drug-treatment program in the next 18 months, a judge is likely to wipe the felony and misdemeanor drug possession charges off his record. Parker, 20, also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving charges, which remain on his record, Gann said.
Prosecutors declined to comment on the case.
"I hope he will complete this program, and go on with his life," said Gann. "I hope this entire circumstance will be a bad dream that will have ended."
The charges are unrelated to the Kennedy case, in which three police officers from the Seventh Precinct now face misconduct and conspiracy charges after prosecutors said that they attempted to stop the investigation.
All of the officers have pleaded not guilty to the charges and have since retired.
