Nelson Stickney was neither arrested nor was he charged with any crimes. Yes, there was an incident that occurred in school, which could possibly be the reason that you have the wrong information because we all know high school students love to spread rumors, but no arrest took place. You should check your facts first before posting such things. I think there is enough misinformation going on with the incessant gossiping that takes place in this town. This post really makes me question the validity of the rest of your posts as well. Such a shame.

Go look on the SCPD website link provide above. It is reported by the police as an arrest. The Patch is reporting exactly what is public record.

Hi Jim, not sure what your message means but Patch reports what is on a public website of arrest and incidents that the SCPD provides.
Judy Mottl (Editor) December 07, 2012 at 04:35 AM
Jim, I commend you on your vocabulary. But it is an incorrect use of the term. That's why it was deleted.

Here is the link to the arrest report: http://apps.suffolkcountyny.gov/police/mediaincidents.htm. If it doesn't provide it initially, then type in the zip code, 11705.

Dylan, if the Suffolk County District Attorney's office drops the charge Patch will update the police blotter information. The arrest reported doesn't indicate where it happened but it is listed as an arrest by the SCPD on its public website, so if that is not true, you need to reach out to them. Everything Patch publishes is factually correct and if something changes we're happy to report that too.

My question: I don't understand why suffolk county has listed this as an arrest when this offense is NOT a crime it is only a "violation" which is equivalent to a traffic ticket. Why wasn't he just issued a violation. Unlawful Possession of Marijuana (PL Section 221.05) The least serious marijuana charge there is in New York is called Unlawful Possession of Marijuana and it is found in New York Penal Law Section 221.05. This section of the law in New York reads very simply, " A person is guilty of unlawful possession of marihuana when he knowingly and unlawfully possesses marihuana." If the quantity of marijuana or circumstances of its possession do not qualify for any other marijuana offense, then the person is guilty of unlawful possession of marijuana. As a practical matter, this section applies to small amounts of marijuana possessed by someone on their person or in their home outside of public view and not burning. Many people are surprised to learn that unlawful possession of marijuana is not even a crime in New York State. Unlawful possession of marijuana is classified by our legislature as a violation. A violation is the legal equivalent of a traffic ticket.
