Family Ordered To Stand Trial For Pot Growing
San Andreas, CA — A dad and his two sons have been ordered to stand trial for criminal cultivation and possession of marijuana.
That´s what Calaveras County visiting judge Richard Specchio decided after a daylong preliminary hearing for the Crosiar family Wednesday.
Fifty-two year-old Wesley Crosiar Senior and his sons 30-year-old Wesley Crosiar Junior, and 21-year-old David Crosiar were all in court and represented by three different attorneys.
On the morning of September 28, 2004 a Calaveras Narcotics Enforcement Unit found about 140 plants on the property of Wesley Crosiar Senior.
Each of the men had doctors´ recommendations to grow a certain amount of marijuana. The District Attorney´s Office argues that the amount being grown was well beyond their prescriptions.
Judge Specchio dropped a charge for criminal transportation of marijuana saying there was insufficient evidence.
Arraignment for all three men has been set for 9 a.m. December 5 in Department one of Superior Court.
