The son of New Bern police chief Frank Palombo was given a reduced sentence after he went through a drug rehabilitation program.
Christopher Palombo was originally given four jail sentences all longer than eight months. He pleaded guilty to numerous drug charges on December 13th in Craven County superior court.
District Attorney Scott Thomas says chief Palombo's son is on intensive probation and if he violates that probation, it's likely that he'll serve the suspended sentences.
The rehab facility is in Florida where his mother lives.
