For years he told judges and juries in courtrooms across New York, to lock up bad criminals for crimes they committed, but now, it turns out that he was also a criminal, according to police reports.

A former Manhattan prosecutor has gone from justice to marijuana dealing, police officers said.

David Leung, 44, who served in New York County as an assistant district attorney from 1993 to 2004, under Robert Morgenthau, was arrested after being accused of selling marijuana to an undercover informant.

The informant accused the marijuana dealer of slipping an envelope with two bags of grass in exchange for $200 during a drug deal at East Ninth Street, according to the criminal complaint.

Police said that they found seven bags of marijuana on the floor of the car driven by Leung, and two large bags of weed in the trunk of his car.

The total amount of marijuana that police seized from Leung was over 8 ounces, according to police reports.
