HARTFORD, Co솔레어 카지노nn. (WDTN) — A Connecticut man who brewed sales of toxic moonshine escaped jail and fought back after he was indicted on two felony charges stemming from the case.
Johnathan Cuffee, 30, who served in Afghanistan, was indicted in November 2015 on the possession of cocaine and heroin, a felony, and the sale of drugs, a misdemeanor.

A second indictment was later issued against Cuffee, charging him with one count of assault with intent to murder, and one count of manufacturing narcotics after police believe he was attempting to produce illegal narcotics from moonshine.
In July, Cuffee made bail, and when he got out on bond, he ran away. He posted a $75,000 bond after his attorney confirmed that he was no longer actively pursuing the case.
Cuffee is represented by John Cuffee, who has also been representing him with a lawyer. He is currently facing two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon in the July case.
Cuffee will next appear in court June 3.
The two counts have already resulted in a six-year sentence for the former soldier.
In January, a judge ruled that Cuffee may be released from jail without the risk of more prison time, but as of June 2017, no prison time is on the table and he will be required to register as a sex offender.
Cuffee is scheduled to appear in court next week and is represented by lawyer Mike McDaniel.
