FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- A Florida man who wore a sweatshirt bearing a recipe for crack cocaine to court pleaded no contest to narcotics trafficking charges.
Christopher Patterson, 27, who previously served time for felony cocaine possession, entered no contest pleas Tuesday in a Fort Lauderdale courtroom to distribution and conspiracy charges related to the sale of the painkiller Oxycodone to an undercover investigator, The Smoking Gun reported Thursday.
Patterson, who sentenced to three years in prison, was photographed in a courtroom last year wearing a hooded sweatshirt bearing a cartoon-like recipe for crack cocaine and a caption reading, "Stack Paper Say Nothing."
The sweatshirt had a zipper pull in the shape of a handgun. The picture was taken by a lawyer who noticed the sweatshirt's images in the courtroom.
