Fla. Congressman Trey Radel was charged with possession of cocaine on Wednesday.
Radel, R-Fla., who is only 10 months into his first term in Congress, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine. He was sentenced to a year of probation and plans to seek counseling. If Radel, 37, completes his probation, he won’t have a conviction charge on his records. The congressman, who is known to be hyper, hasn’t announced any plans to resign from office, reports the Washington Post.
Radel was caught when he bought cocaine from an undercover agent on Oct. 26. He purchased 3.5 grams of cocaine from the agent for $260. Radel was approached by officers after the incident and he then invited them to his home, where they found a vial that had cocaine in it, the Washington Post notes. Read
