Pound for pound costs more than gold
A fine, fine nugget in today's Inquirer piece about a hearing (for a defendant in case related to the copter-caught police-beating) turned octagon bout. The Perrine referenced is D. Scott Perrine, defense for Pete Hopkins, 19, Kensington.
Perrine allegedly went to Curran-Fromhold in Northeast Philadelphia on Oct. 24 to see a client. When officers searched his briefcase, authorities say, they found a vial of cocaine.
Court records say Perrine told prison officials that a client had surrendered the cocaine to him and that he forgot it was in his briefcase.
