Chambers Rejects Plea in Drug Case

Robert Chambers, who served 15 years in prison for manslaughter in what was known as "the preppy murder case," has rejected an offer to plead guilty and serve four months for possession of two straws and an empty tinfoil that had traces of drug residue on them. The maximum he could receive if he went to trial and lost is one year.

Cops stopped him in Harlem last year and ticketed him for driving with a suspended license. The straws and tinfoil turned up in a search of the back seat of his car.

Were they even his? Does anyone else go to jail in New York for drug residue? He and his lawyer are not talking.
