Drug defense cites McHenry County detective’s romance
WOODSTOCK – A man facing multiple felony drug charges wants evidence thrown out because the informant in the case – the man’s fiancée – allegedly had a sexual relationship with a detective.
According to court documents, in early March 2011, the woman contacted the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office about drugs allegedly found in the home she shared with Christopher L. Branham, 43, at 1795 Thomasville Lane in Crystal Lake.
She was put in contact with then-Detective Jason Novak of the narcotics division, who reportedly told her that if she arranged it so that the items could be confiscated, no charges would be filed.
