A Bakersfield man accused of selling stolen drugs in the now infamous Bakersfield police scandal, already is seeing some leniency.
Noel Carter is accused of selling drugs Damacio Diaz and Patrick Mara stole from the BPD.
Federal court documents state Carter left envelopes filled with meth at his offices in the Bank of America building downtown, where an undisclosed person picked up the drugs and left payment in its place. Documents state he made $216,000 off the deal.
Carter pleaded not guilty in September to federal drug and conspiracy charges. Carter has been on house arrest. His release has since been modified to a curfew — only requiring him to be home from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
If convicted, Carter faces a maximum of life in prison and a $10 million fine. He’s due in court next Monday.
