Former Fulton narcotics prosecutor gets bond on narcotics charges

A former Fulton County narcotics prosecutor on Monday was granted a $25,000 bond Monday after being arrested on narcotics charges in Cobb County.

Superior Court Judge Greg Poole granted bond in the amount of $25,000, “with several conditions, including weekly drug tests,” Kimberly Isaza, spokeswoman for the Cobb DA’s office, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

A Cobb County grand jury indicted Rand Jason Csehy, Fulton County’s former top narcotics prosecutor, for illegal drugs on Dec. 4.

Csehy was arrested in September for illegal possession of methamphetamine when a Cobb Superior Court judge became suspicious of his behavior during a hearing when Csehy was representing a client.

The arrest prompted a move by the state Bar Association to disbar Csehy, whom it already had been investigating regarding his May 2012 arrest on drugs and weapons charges by Atlanta police in a sting operation. Csehy was charged then with attempting to distribute methamphetamine and Ecstasy, a club drug otherwise known as MDMA.

The two-count indictment said Csehy also illegally possessed Chlordiazepoxide, described as a sedative, hypnotic, psychoactive drug that is often used to treat severe anxiety.
