AFTER a 2 1/2 year public fight, 2 public trials a dozens hearings and just as many flights back forth across the country I got sentenced to "probation" for simple 4th degree possesion.I'm absolutely not happy with this probation, there was an agreement in pre-trial arguements that a "STAY of SENTENCE" pending the appeal would be granted - JUDGE DELEHEY RENEGGED!
I never thought I'd get convicted of anything but was positive I wasnt going to prison for distribution. I knew and predicted the Jury would not find me guilty of distribution I knew the Jury would Nullify that charged and it did.
Now in reality this simple possesion conviction is a blessing for my cause, Im facing no prison and still I get to appeal the unfair trial conditions, pre-trial rulings and present constitutional arguement to change the law for all! I now get to take my legal arguements before the New Jersey appeals court and make new law!
Since New Jersey has just enacted its medical marijuana laws there are issues that are totally new that will be before the court.
FOR INSTANCE - How does the state respond legally to out of staters who have doctors recommendations and medical cards? Will the state reschedule marijuana? How will the appeals court rule on my Constitutional Challenge brief that Judge Delehey denied?
