Just got sentenced on 3 class D felonies, (max 12 years) Could not be happier!!! AMA

Was charged with 3 counts of Delivery manufacture marijuana, all class D felonies. Have been going to court for 6 months. Been through a ton of judges and a ton of prosecutors. I turned down every deal they threw at me. I finally got my case kicked down to Circuit Court. For those of you unaware Circuit Court is the big court, murders/rapes/Huge drug busts etc. The thought was that I would receive a much better deal here.

After going to multiple court dates and having the prosecutor turn me down and offering me crappy plea deals, I hired another lawyer, one that had more experience with the supervisors of the prosecutors. I now had 2 lawyers working my case, but with a ton of experience.

I was starting to lose hope and get very depressed that I was never going to get a good deal. Until this morning.

I went into court today, like the countless other times, my lawyers went into the room to speak to the prosecutor like they have countless times before. This time he came out of the room with a surprised look on his face, and said "we need to go up stairs and talk to the prosecutors supervisor".

The guy could not have been cooler. Offered me 1 misdemeanor count of possession of marijuana with 1 year probation. I signed it.

Went in front of the judge and he shot down the prosecution's guidelines of 1 year probation, and he gave me 6 months probation. Then the judge asked me about how i was going to pay $750 in court costs, what type of payment plan I wanted to get on. I told him, "i am prepared to pay in full today." he responded with, "as soon as you pay all your costs your probation is over."

Went to the clerk and paid $750 with a 4% credit card processing fee. And im officially done.

So this is how you got started!

Got it!

So how much money have you made selling weed?
Do you sell to your tenants?
Do you use your "rental homes" as stash houses?
Are you just a middle man or are you THE man?
Launder the money via "home rentals"?
Are you out the "game" now?
How did you get busted?
How much did you get caught with?

Give a brief description of what it is like to wake up with a house full of cops. What time of the day was it?

Its not like it is in the movies. I pulled out of my subdivision and was pulled over by a cop. Then a few unmarked cars pulled up and told me they had a warrant for my house, and then they took me to jail while they searched my house.

They rarely ever serve drug warrants when the person is home. Too risky for all parties involved.

Why do we tie up the court system with marijuana (or any recreational drug, for that matter)? Complete waste of time and money. Should be like a traffic offense, or less. Just legalize the shite and make the money from taxes rather than fines. Win-win for everyone.

Glad you got out of it. Sorry you had to go through the process to do it.

Interesting.

So were you growing where you were living or did you have a separate house?

102 plants is a lot. All indoor? Outdoor?

process sucked. They seized my car. I was eventually able to get it back for $1900 after a ton of back and forth negotiations.

Very scary when it first happens and your first thoughts are "......can they seize my house....???"

Yeah, that sounds really scary! Glad the "man" didn't lock you up. You got off way easy. Down in Louisiana you get caught with 5 plants you will see 10 years. Hell, I was in court for a traffic ticket once and another gentlemen was there for a possession of marijuana charge and the judge gave him 6 freaking months in jail for like a gram of weed!!!!!!!!! Now it is only like this in little rural towns. The city like NOLA isn't like that at all. They won't even arrest you for weed possession anymore.
