Used car dealer asks judge to toss marijuana charge
Published: June 18,2012
JACKSON — A man convicted of a marijuana charge related to a raid on a Jackson car lot is asking for a judge to throw out his conviction and order a new trial.
Jeremy Lee Stambaugh, owner of Paradise Auto Sales in south Jackson, was arrested at the car lot in February along with Johnny Earl Course and David E. Jones.
Stambaugh and Course pleaded guilty, but Jones went to trial. He was convicted June 6.
His attorney wants that thrown out, arguing in U.S. District Court that the evidence didn’t support the conviction.
Federal court records say a raid on the business uncovered 416 pounds of marijuana.
