Disposition delayed for teen facing marijuana charge

June 10, 2004|by PEPPER BALLARD

Disposition was delayed Wednesday for a 15-year-old boy who admitted in juvenile court to possession of marijuana.

The youth was brought to the courthouse after he missed a scheduled appearance earlier Wednesday morning before Washington County Circuit Judge Donald E. Beachley, sitting in juvenile court.

His mother arrived on time for her son's appearance, but told the judge that her son had escaped through a window the night before and she didn't know where he was.

Beachley ordered that the youth's disposition be delayed until a pre-disposition investigation is finished.

Washington County Assistant State's Attorney Steven Kessell said that on March 25, a Washington County Narcotics Task Force criminal informant made a phone call to buy marijuana from 'Mike' and was told to meet a male wearing a black shirt and hat at a shop on Virginia Avenue to make the buy.

He said that when the informant went to the ice cream store, he saw three males, one of whom was wearing the described outfit, and got into a vehicle that circled the block to make the exchange.

When the car returned to the store the youth was identified as wearing the black outfit and was found with a small bag of marijuana, Kessell said.
