Accused Drug Dealer Had 102 Vials of Cocaine, 32 of Heroin: Jersey City

A 38-year-old Jersey City man is facing numerous drug charges after police say he was seen dealing heroin to two people near a school and a park. Antwon Hill was arrested last week and charged with drug possession and possession with intent to distribute within 1,000 feet of School 40, located at 88 Gates Ave., and within 500 feet of Columbia Park, the complaint says.

When Hill was arrested, he had 102 vials of suspected cocaine and 32 vials of suspected heroin, officials said. Hill was also charged with conspiracy for allegedly using a man as a lookout. He made his first appearance on the charges Thursday in Criminal Justice Reform Court in Jersey City via video link from Hudson County jail in Kearny.

At the hearing, the state moved to detain him through the course of his prosecution and a detention hearing is scheduled today before Hudson County Superior Court Judge Paul DePascale in the Hudson County Administration Building in Jersey City.

A person convicted of distribution of a CDS or possession of a CDS with the intent to distribute within 500 feet of certain public property, except where the offense is less than one ounce of marijuana, will be sentenced as a second degree offender which is an offense that will carry a term of imprisonment that can range from between 5 to 10 years. For purpose of this statute, the term public property is broadly defined.

If you or someone you love has been charged with a marijuana crime in New Jersey, be it possession or possession with intent to distribute, you must seek legal representation immediately. You likely have legal options you hadn’t considered, and you don’t want to face these charges without having explored every possible legal option for the best outcome.

From a former client

"First thing I want to tell is that I thank God for giving me the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person like you and without question, the best lawyer in this world. I am very grateful for everything you did for me. I want to let you know that I'm doing good and if you ever think of coming to . . . for vacation don't forget to contact me. Thanks again Mr. Luciano and please say hello to that kind lady that answers the phone with pleasure every time I called."


From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."


From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."


From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
