Tulsa County / Felony Reduced to Misdemeanor – Delivery of Marijuana
J.B. was charged with felony delivery of marijuana after an undercover officer approached him in a local Tulsa bar and asked him for some marijuana. After the officer asked for the marijuana several times, J.B. gave him some. The officer arrested J.B. for delivery of marijuana.
During the trial, Joe argued sentencing entrapment. Sentencing entrapment means that an individual may be guilty of one crime, in this case possession of marijuana, but the government entrapped the person into a more severe crime, in this case delivery.
The sentencing entrapment argument was successful and the felony delivery of marijuana charge was reduced to misdemeanor possession of marijuana. J.B. went home a happy man.
