Texas Teen Might Serve Life Sentence Over Pot Brownies

Jacob Lavoro was a normal  Texas teen who played football, until he was arrested and charged with a first-degree felony last week.  What did he do? He was caught baking, and selling, hash-laced brownies to people in his suburb. He is now facing 5 years to LIFE because his offense is being prosecuted as a felony. 


It’s a felony in this case, because authorities in Texas are allowed to include “the weight of the entire product — which, in this case, includes the flour, sugar, butter, and other ingredients in the pot brownies — to be counted toward the total weight of the drugs seized.”


“Five years to life? 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!” 

“If he did something wrong, he should be punished — but to the extent that makes sense,” the father added. “This is illogical. I’m really upset, and I’m frightened, I’m frightened for my son.”

Joe Lavoro, Jacob’s father, told KEYE-TV.

Sucks to be that guy! He probably won’t get anywhere near life in prison though; it sounds like most people involved realized that sending him to jail for that long would be ridiculous.
