Punishment for Hash Brownie Baker Drops From 10 Years in Prison to Seven Years of Probation
The Austin American-Statesman reports that Jacob Lavoro, the Texas teenager who originally faced a sentence of 10 years to life after he was caught with a pound and a half of hash-infused cookies and brownies, will get seven years of probation under a plea deal with the Williamson County District Attorney’s Office. The dramatic penalty reduction became possible after prosecutors dropped a first-degree felony charge that treated Lavoro’s baked goods as if they consisted entirely of hash oil. Instead he pleaded guilty to a second-degree felony, possession of four to 400 grams of hash oil.
