Kevin Nowak

Other CIU Drug Cases
On August 4, 2014, police in Houston, Texas arrested 19-year-old Kevin Nowak and charged him with possession of a controlled substance after they seized codeine for which he had no prescription.

In August 7, 2014, Nowak pled guilty in Harris County Criminal District Court to possession of a controlled substance and was sentenced to probation for three years.

The Harris County District Attorney’s Post Conviction Review Unit informed Nowak’s defense attorney in October 2013 that the Houston Police crime laboratory tested the evidence and reported that no controlled substance was found.

On October 23, 2014, the prosecution joined with Nowak’s lawyer to request that the conviction be vacated. The motion was granted and the charge was dismissed.
