Al-Hamdany Trial Scheduled for June


A Westbrook man, originally from Iraq, will go to
trial on drug charges. Abbas Al Hamdany, 38, pleaded not guilty to charges of
aggravated trafficking of cocaine in November. Police said Al Hamdany was
selling drugs from his convenience store. Friday's hearing was continued from
last week because Al Hamdany fired his lawyer. A trial is set to begin in June.
(Update: WGME has video footage from Al-Hamdany's court appearance.)
