Rep. Trey Radel Pleads Guilty to Cocaine Possession

The Florida Republican received one-year probation and a $260 fine.

November 20, 2013

Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla., pleaded guilty on Wednesday to a misdemeanor for possession of cocaine after being arrested in Dupont Circle on Oct. 29. The lawmaker was sentenced to a one-year probation and a $260 fine. Radel said he will seek treatment for alcoholism in a statement Tuesday night.

According to court documents, Radel bought 3.5 grams of cocaine from an undercover police officer. Allegedly, the House member invited the undercover officer to use cocaine with him and an acquaintance at his apartment. The documents also allege that Radel had bought and used cocaine on "several occasions" for personal use and for sharing with others.

On Wednesday, he told the D.C. Superior Court judge that he has "hit a bottom" and realizes he needs help.

 

From here, the House Ethics Committee will be required to look into the case.
