Life in Prison For Pot Brownies: 'This is Damn Wrong!'Submitted by Diamond Dog on Sun, 05/18/2014 - 18:06
We're learning more about the man facing five years to life in prison for allegedly making and selling pot brownies. Police in Round Rock arrested Jacob Lavoro last month. He's charged with a first degree felony.
Think that's harsh? Lavoro's lawyer and family would agree with you. "It's outrageous, it's crazy! I don't understand it" exclaimed Joe Lavoro. He's Jacob's father. He made the comment outside the courtroom after one of what could be many court appearances for Jacob. "Five years to life?" he continued. "I'm sorry, I'm a law abiding citizen. I'm a conservative. I love my country. I'm a Vietnam veteran, but I'll be damned ... this is wrong, this is damn wrong!"
Lavoro's lawyer Jack Holmes agrees. "I was outraged. I've been doing this 22 years as a lawyer and I've got 10 years as a police officer and I've never seen anything like this before."
