While conducting an undercover operation, police allegedly purchased drugs, including cocaine, from Chambers at his residence in Manhattan's Upper East Side. According to police reports, Chambers struggled with officers and thus "resisted arrest."
Chambers was also charged with several counts of selling a controlled substances . Chambers vacation from prison lasted over four years. Chambers' live in girlfriend, was also arrested for sale of a controlled substance.
Why was Chambers originally convicted of murder? Jennifer Levin, was 18 at the time her strangled, partially clothed body was found. Supposedly, back in 1986, Chambers's girlfriend "Alex"broke up with him at Dorrian's Red Hand the night of the killing. She was apparently jealousy of Jennifer Levin. Chambers subsequently left the bar with Levin. Levin's strangled body was found with bruises, bite marks and cuts by a bicyclist beneath an elm tree behind the Metropolitan Museum or Art near Fifth Avenue and 83rd street. Levin died of "asphyxia by strangulation." Chambers apparently watched from a nearby spot as police officers found Levin's underwear some 50 yards away from the body.
So why was Chambers free? Chambers was released from prison on February 14, 2003 after serving only 15 years.
Did Chambers Have any other violations in the last four years?
