Heroin Dealer Convicted from 2009 South End Arrest

Boston Police Department

A habitual offender with 42 prior convictions was convicted once again this week on drug charges stemming from a 2009 drug arrest in the South End. 

Julio Medina, 54, was convincted of dealing heroin in a school zone to police officers in 2009. The drug evidence in the case had been tested by state drug lab chemist Annie Dookhan, who has been accused of mishandling evidence. 

Medina has 42 convictions including 11 for drug offenses, four for violent crimes, and three for weapon-related crimes, according to Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley. He faces another trial April 22 for enhanced penalties as a habitual offender.

“Given all the facts, anyone can see that the evidence in a drug case is never limited to merely the drugs,” Conley said. “There’s a sequence of events before and after the arrest. There’s a pattern of evidence surrounding the drugs, their packaging, and their distribution. The jury made the right call and they made it in record time – even without knowing this defendant’s long and egregious history.” read more
