A Quincy man pleaded not guilty this morning to conspiring to violate drug laws when he allegedly orchestrated large sales of the club drug Molly from inside jail to raise his bail money, Norfolk County prosecutors said.
David G. Courage, 24, was arraigned in Dedham District Court and held on $100,000 cash bail on the new charge, Norfolk County prosecutors said. He is slated to return to court Nov. 22.
Courage was allegedly organizing the drug deals over jail phones with his girlfriend, Cory Lyn Wojcuilewicz, 25. He was in the Norfolk County jail awaiting trial on an assault charge.
State troopers conducted surveillance on Wojcuilewicz before she was arrested. She will also be charged in the operation, prosecutors said.
“Sheriff [Michael] Bellotti has security personnel and apparatus working in the jail to detect ongoing criminal activity, and it was through those efforts that this was first detected,” District Attorney Michael W. Morrissey said in a statement.
Recent overdoses have heightened concerns about Molly, the powder or crystal form of ecstasy, or MDMA.
