WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TX (KTBC/FOX) - A teenager facing life in prison for selling pot brownies had his hearing delayed Wednesday because of a technicality in weighing the evidence.
Round Rock police had initially calculated the weight of the illegal substance along with the brownie mix and the plastic container.
Jacob Lavoro, 19, was arrested in April and charged with possession of marijuana as well as the manufacture and delivery of baked goods that contained hash oil.
Lab results came back Wednesday showing the actual weight of the THC content, but not in time for Lavoro's court hearing.
"Needless to say, it's made me really depressed," Lavoro said. "Other than that, it showed me who are my friends and who are not my friends."
His case will soon be presented to a grand jury that will decide if Lavoro should be indicted.
Defense attorney Jack Holmes said it will be a struggle.
"He will be indicted for over 400 grams, a first-degree felony," Holmes said. "It will be up to the judge to weed out, so to speak, the brownie mix and the other things you can't weigh with the illegal substance."
Holmes said Lavoro's apartment was illegally searched after police identified themselves as maintenance, another reason he thinks the judge should dismiss the case.
"To want to see this happen to him, just because you can, is criminal in itself," said Joe Lavoro, the father of the accused.
