Cleveland Drug Cases In Doubt As Informant Changes Story


Jerrell Bray, a Drug Enforcement Administration informant in Cleveland, told federal public defenders that he helped DEA agent Lee Lucas put 30 people behind bars who didn’t deserve to be there, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The Bray-Lucas relationship has Cleveland’s federal law enforcement officials in a panic.

Police officers who work with Lucas, 39, say Bray, 34, is lying to sink the DEA agent’s career because Lucas cut him off and would not get him out of jail after Bray shot a man during a drug deal. Several attorneys said that Bray’s bombshell accusation could jeopardize dozens of drug convictions and calls into question the credibility of the justice system.
