Hunterdon County Prosecutor Anthony P. Kearns, III, announced the indictment of Christopher T. Brown, age 38, of Irvington, New Jersey. On September 15, 2016, a Hunterdon County Grand Jury returned two separate charges against Mr. Brown in connection with the heroin overdose death of a Raritan Township man. According to Prosecutor Kearns, “An intensive four month investigation revealed that Mr. Brown traveled to a residence on Oak Grove Road in Raritan Township and sold an amount of heroin to a man who later died as a result of a heroin overdose.” Mr. Brown was indicted on one count of Strict Liability For Drug Induced Death, a 1st degree crime, and Possession Of A Controlled Dangerous Substance With Intent To Distribute, a 3rd degree crime. The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office Gangs, Guns, & Narcotics Task Force and the Raritan Township Police Department that led to Mr. Brown’s arrest on April 4, 2016. The Prosecutor added, “The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office will continue to vigorously investigate all overdose deaths and bring those responsible to justice.” The filing of a criminal complaint is merely a step in the criminal justice process. The defendant is presumed innocent until the matter is resolved in a court of law.
