A man arrested in June with 60 bags of heroin is getting a one-year probation sentence.
Moshe M. Kahan, 33, pleaded guilty to a single count of third-degree drug possession on Tuesday morning.
Kahan admitted to having the 60 bags of heroin in his hands on June 15 on 6th Avenue and East 24th Street in Paterson.
Kahan faced a maximum of five years in state prison, but entered into a plea agreement with the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office. His probation will run concurrent with an existing municipal court probation term.
“I just want this drug thing behind me and still make a life for myself,” said Kahan. He worried he won’t be able to become a certified public accountant with a drug conviction.
Once he successfully completes probation, Kahan will be able to expunge his criminal record.
Kahan is scheduled to be sentenced on October 2.
