A Towamencin man and Norristown lawyer accused of dealing Oxycodone out of his offices, and who is sitting in Chester County prison on $99,000 bail, has filed a habeas corpus motion with the Montgomery County court system.
Gregory Noonan, 53, of the 100 block of Oberlin Terrace, is challenging the legality of his imprisonment, believing Norristown District Court Judge Margaret Hunsicker was wrong in holding charges against him for trial at a preliminary hearing Jan. 3, per The Reporter.
A formal arraignment in county court is set for Feb. 12.
Noonan was arrested Dec. 20 after an undercover sting operation, in which he allegedly sold drugs from his Swede Street office.
On Nov. 23, at 9:42 a.m., authorities allege Noonan allegedly unwittingly called an undercover Philadelphia Police Officer's cell phone and left a message stating he wanted to meet him at his office. At 11:45 a.m., Noonan allegedly called again, but did not leave a message. Noonan then called a third time at 11:58 a.m., leaving a message stating that he really needed to meet with the undercover officer, authorities said.
At 12:32 p.m. Nov. 23, the undercover officer called Noonan's cell phone. Noonan and the officer agreed to meet at Noonan's office at 6:30 p.m. that day, authorities said.
At 6:55 p.m., the undercover officer met with Noonan inside his Jaguar outside his law firm, according to authorities. 
Noonan allegedly sold the undercover officer 179 30-milligram Oxycodone pills, at $15 per pill, Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Ferman said.
On Dec. 12, at 5:08 p.m., Noonan called the undercover officer again. He contacted the officer a second time a week later on Thursday afternoon. The two agreed to meet Thursday night between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m., Ferman said in December.
On Thursday, at 6:15 p.m., Noonan met with the officer at Noonan's law office. Noonan exited his office and met with the officer inside Noonan's Jaguar, Ferman said.
The undercover officer allegedly gave Noonan $3,250 in pre-recorded serialized currency, police said.
In return, Noonan allegedly handed over a pill bottle with 180 30-mg Oxycodone pills, Ferman said.
Noonan was then arrested by Montgomery County Detectives.
Noonan is charged with two counts of felony delivery of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, two counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of criminal use of a communications device, police said.
Noonan's bail was reduced from $250,000 at his preliminary hearing, per court records.

Well, that will get him no where, except a field trip to the courthouse. Gregory Noonan is where he belongs. he has been involved in doing, and selling drugs forever. They fascinate him. The only difference.....he doesn't have an oscar for best actor. On a side note......they need to fix this problem with pain pills. I don't know who makes them, but if would never take one no matter how much pain I was in. I got shot in the arm with a nail gun and a 4 inch nail......I still refused the pills. The company that makes these things, that everyone so craves........needs to stop. I'm sure any drug company can make a drug that is addictive. What is the society value in that? Nothing. In defense of this a....hole, greg noonan, he has become a victim of his own stupidity. It's caused him to do many other illegal acts as an attorney however, for that.......fry him!
