A convicted sex offender was sentenced to at least one year in jail and two years of probation for having an illegal drug in his house.
The punishment for a drug test, which is usually an hour and a half, is a seven-to-one five-day sentence for a crime of simple possession that involved a drug-addicted person. For the trial, the punishment is for a day of solitary confinement on probation.
The drug in question was a marijuana derivative, and the crime is what’s known as possession for sale. But a conviction for possession for sale requires more than a mere possession of the drug, it’s also a “trafficking” offense, which means that the accused must have offered the drug for sale. So it’s possible that the defendant is not actually selling to minors, he’s simply hiding the drug in his house.

It’s not uncommon for people with drug convictions to find themselves in prison, even if they never intended to sell drugs. But, in our case, the defendant was sent to prison for possession of drugs for sale. The only problem is that when the probation officer found the defendant’s stash, he didn’t have any proof. The probation officer said he didn’t have enough evidence to charge him with possession of a controlled substance for sale.
Including police reports and surveillance photos, the police report states that the defendant was arrested for possession in the middle of a drug deal and was sentenced to five days in prison. The only other reason for the sentence was that the defendant was found to be drunk and mentally ill, so not many people know who the man was.
The other thing that is weird about this case is that the probation officer thought he had enough evidence to charge him, but that is the only reason the judge gave him, and that is what he was convicted of. The judge said, “At the very least you should have the right to a hearing on your drug use, a drug test, and a urine test”.
So the judge didn’t really think it was a good thing to have to impose a jail sentence. The judge had to order him to get out and go to jail. It probably happened at the same time that the probation officer was in the dark about how the judge actually thought he had enough evidence to charge.
So far, the judge has basically ignored the evidence that the probation officer and the state prosecutor showed him to support the drug charges. It seems to have been a matter of the probation officer and prosecutors making up a story about when he failed a drug test to get him out of jail, and the judge being blindsided by that. It’s sad because it illustrates how much a judge can be a blindsided by a prosecutor and a defendant in a legal case.
That is an example of the power of the law, and the power of the judge. If there were no law and no judge, the government and the government’s attorney would be able to make up a story about how someone failed a drug test and get a person sent to jail. That is exactly what happened. You can bet this will happen again and again in the future, so it’s important to be aware of the power of the law and the power of the judge.
