Prosecutors say Gregory Noonan didn’t know he was calling a cell phone that belonged to an undercover cop. They say the 53-year-old Lansdale man made arrangements to meet the officer at Noonan’s law office in Norristown, where he allegedly sold nearly 400 oxycodone pills at $15 a pop.
Court records reveal the alleged buys took place outside the office, in Noonan’s Jaguar.READ MORE: Encampment Outside University City Townhomes Refuses To Budge, Despite Court Order Demanding Them To Move Out
Noonan recently represented Dr. Richard Ruth, who was found guilty of supplying oxycodone to drug-addicted residents of the North Penn (Montgomery County) area (see related story).
Prosecutors say Noonan is facing a mandatory minimum prison term of three years, based on the weight of the pills, and another two-year mandatory minimum because it was within 1,000 feet of a school.MORE NEWS: 3 Women Shot In Brewerytown Were Targeted Due To Instagram Post: Philadelphia Police
