He's charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance... and possession of drug paraphernalia. DeJesus was arraigned before District Justice Doug Brewer... who set bail at $75,000 straight cash. Since he didn't have that... DeJesus was hustled off to the Columbia County Prison.
