Posted on July 6th, 2012 No Comments

A Houston man who was caught speeding on U.S. 59 in February 2011 has plead guilty to being in possession of 20 pounds of marijuana.

The officer who pulled him and his two companions over reported that they seemed nervous and detected the scent of marijuana in the vehicle, giving him probable cause to search. He found the drugs stashed in the trunk.

He was sentenced to four years of deferred adjudication and ordered to pay a $500 fine.
