Ali also said that part of his strategy involved admitting McCloud was in possession of the drugs, but that he had no intention of dealing.

"There was no way around it," Ali said. "If we had said anything to the contrary, it wouldn't have been true."

For McCloud to be eligible for the enhanced habitual offender status, it needed to be proved that he was within 1,000 feet of a community housing project and that he intended to deliver the drugs to someone under 18 years old. Happe said the state couldn't prove the latter.
