WilCo Man Avoids Life In Prison For Making Pot Brownies

Updated: Tuesday, August 26 2014, 06:28 PM CDT

A grand jury has declined to indict a Williamson County man for first degree possession of a controlled substance for making pot brownies. But his legal troubles aren't over.

Jacob Lavoro faced a potential life sentence for the first degree felony.

But he now faces 2-20 years after the grand jury indicted him for second degree possession of a controlled substance for the hash oil found at his home.

Police allege Lavoro was operating a pot cookie and brownie business out of his apartment. They say inside Lavoro's apartment they found six bags of cookies, nine bags of brownies, and $1,675 in cash. 

Lavoro was facing serious prison time because police had weighed the brownies as drug evidence, even though lab results found only 2.5 grams of THC in the hash oil and brownies confiscated from his home.

Lavoro's attorney argued he should be charged based on the weight of the THC and not the weight of brownie mix and Tupperware it was stored in.
