Appeal Courts and Supreme Court of TN Agree with Rutherford County Courts on Case Dealing with 70-Pounds of Marijuana

  Email   Print

A man who entered a conditional guilty plea in Rutherford County to one count of conspiracy to sell over seventy pounds of marijuana and one count of possessing over seventy pounds of marijuana was denied an appeal on Tuesday by the Supreme Court of Tennessee. The case was denied once already last year by the Court of Criminal Appeals of Tennessee.

To make the case more confusing, the appeal also involved a second defendant by the name of Kasey King. The courts also consolidated cases that were related to the two defendants from Davidson and Sumner Counties. The cases in those counties focused on felony marijuana charges and charges of money laundering. An appeal filed in 2013 affirmed the trial courts original judgments. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of Tennessee further affirmed the decision of the lower courts and again denied the applicants a new trial.

The cases in all three counties were quite extensive and date back to 2008 when the wire taps were first ordered. In Rutherford County, the investigation included six confidential informants.


The appeals court documents from 2013 stated, “We have determined that the Defendants are entitled to no relief on the basis of the certified questions reserved in their conditional guilty pleas. Accordingly, we affirm the judgments of conviction entered against each of the Defendants by the Rutherford, Davidson, and Sumner County trial courts.”
