What's up girl, thanks for the support wile locked up. I passed your info on to new guys coming in. Never told you my story, here it is in short version. I live in Shingle Springs Ca. and got busted growing. Everything was going great till my broker got greedy and went out of state. When he got busted he led them back to me. I usually keep with in the guide lines of my county, however I was getting ready to switch from my in door to greenhouse for summer. I was vegging for my self and a few other growers, since I had the room. So when they came DEA . I got caught with more plants than I should have had. My county is 99 and I had about 200 in veg and 50 in flower. For that they charged me with manufacturing and sales. I'm not sure how you manufacturer weed, I thought it was cultivating ,however it is what it is. I got caught with to much. I got sentenced to two years and four years paper. As you know that's not the worst part of it. I got a devorsed , haven't seen my boys in two years, lost my rights, and all my money. I know I can replace my passions, however it still sucks. That's that in a nutshell. Thank you for your support and keep up the good fight.....
More than $230,000 has been handed out to the El Dorado County criminal justice system. The payments stem from the investigation into an interstate marijuana-trafficking ring that resulted in federal prosecution. The funds were made available through the U.S. Department of Justice equitable sharing program, which is designed to enhance cooperation among federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies.
The case involves the arrest and conviction of two men charged with conspiring to cultivate marijuana and distribute it out-of-state.
Robert Mulready, 50, of Placerville was sentenced to three and a half years in prison.
Duane Petersen, 40, of Shingle Springs received a sentence of 22 months.
The two had to forfeit cash, bank accounts, and a house on 10 acres of land in Placerville.
