A middle-aged man walked into Brooklyn Supreme Court in his street clothes Friday and left in handcuffs with a two-year prison sentence in front of him for drug possession.

Johnel Lillard pleaded guilty in June to possessing cocaine and marijuana, setting himself up for a promised two-year sentence by Supreme Court Justice William Harrington.

“I love you all, see you later,” Lillard said to his family members as he was escorted out of the courtroom by court officers.

He was arrested for the crime on Sept. 10, 2015 in Brownsville, Brooklyn.

He pleaded to criminal possession of a controlled dangerous substance and attempted criminal possession.

Before his sentence he was out on $10,000 bail bond.
