19-Year-Old Could Face Life in Prison for Pot Brownies
A 19-year-old Texas man could be facing the possibility of life in prison for allegedly baking and selling pot brownies.
According to police in Round Rock, a city north of Austin, officers found 1.5 pounds of brownies, along with a pound of marijuana, digital scales, $1,675 in cash and several bags of marijuana at Jacob Lavoro’s apartment last month.
Now, Lavoro faces a first-degree felony and if convicted, the former high school football player with a clean record faces a possible punishment ranging from five years to life behind bars.
His father Joe Lavoro called the potential punishment “outrageous.”
“Five years to life? I’m sorry, I’m a law-abiding citizen, I’m a conservative, but I’ll be damned,” Joe Lavoro said. “This is wrong. This is damn wrong.”
