Brother and Sister Bust Father for Possession
Posted on Jun 29, 2011 in Drugs
The 12 year old son and 13 year old daughter of Thomas Morin, 44, were fed up with their father’s use of marijuana and alcohol, so they took it upon themselves to curb his habit.
The children called the local police station in Cottonwood Heights, Utah and reported his drug abuse. When Sgt. Scott Peck arrived at the house he asked the girl to retrieve Morin’s stash from inside the house. “Yeah, I’ll go get it,” she responded as she ran into the house. She returned with a small, approx. 23 gram, bag of marijuana.
Morin has been charged with child endangerment and possession of marijuana. It is doubtful that he will receive a heavy sentence for so small an amount of marijuana, but the court will try to ensure the children are in a safe environment with their father.
If you or anyone you know has been charged with possession, it is important to mount a legal defense. Contact Bloom Legal at 504-599-9997 for a legal consultation.
