District Attorney Hoovler Announces Aggregate 14 Year Sentence in Middletown Narcotics Cases
Defendant Convicted of Selling Cocaine to City of Middletown Undercover Police Officer on Three Separate Occasions
Orange County District Attorney David M. Hoovler announced that on Thursday, January 20, 2022, Glenn Bradshaw, 30, of Middletown, was sentenced in Orange County Court to a total of fourteen years in state prison, and three years post-release supervision, related to his trial conviction for numerous sales of narcotics to an undercover officer of the City of Middletown Police Department and a violation of probation. In November 2021, Bradshaw was convicted by a jury in the Orange County Court of three counts of Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree and three counts of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the Third Degree. During the trial, prosecutors argued that Bradshaw sold cocaine to an undercover police officer of the City of Middletown Police Department on July 15, 2019, July 23, 2019, and August 15, 2019. As a result of bail reform legislation, Bradshaw was released with no monetary bail being set during the pendency of the case, including during the trial. Bradshaw was remanded to the Orange County Jail without bail following the verdict.
District Attorney Hoovler thanked the City of Middletown Police Department for their investigation and the arrest of the defendant.
District Attorney Hoovler highly commended Assistant District Attorney Tanja Beemer and Assistant District Attorney Alexis Gregory who prosecuted the case.
“Those who choose to distribute poison into our communities for personal gain deserve to be met with the just hand of law,” said District Attorney David Hoovler. “My office will not be dissuaded by such individuals being released without bail. On the contrary, my office will double down our efforts to ensure that offenders face just punishment for their crimes. I thank the City of Middletown Police Department for their actions on this case, and their diligence in fighting narcotics crimes.”
This criminal charge is merely an allegation that a defendant has committed a violation of the criminal law, and it is not evidence of guilt. All defendants are presumed innocent and entitled to a fair trial, during which it will be the State of New York’s burden to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
