WCVB reports a technician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center was charged with trafficking Class A drugs after he allegedly accepted a package at his South End apartment with nearly eight pounds of the date-rape drug GHB from a state trooper dressed as a DHL delivery person.
The Suffolk County District Attorney's office asked for Shannon Lyons to have bail to be set at $50,000, but Boston Municipal Court Judge Tracy-Lee Lyons released him on his own recognizance. He is due back in court on Sept. 3.
If convicted of the charge, he faces a sentence of up to 20 years in state prison.
