More than a dozen defendants in a drug conspiracy/money laundering case walked out as free men Friday, some after they had already pleaded guilty and been sentenced.

Prosecutors dropped the charges because of allegations that an FBI agent had used the heroin they were allegedly dealing.

“Just glad it’s over with,” said one of the defendants. Some of them were looking at the possibility of spending the rest of their lives in prison.
