This past week, a mother and son who were allegedly part of the same marijuana drug ring were sentenced in a federal court in Waco, TX. Earlier this year, both mother and son pleaded guilty to charges of possession of marijuana with intent to sell and conspiracy to possess marijuana with the intent to sell.
The son, 26-year-old Conner Phillip Koss, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, while his mother, 60-year-old Le’Ann Koss, was sentenced to 6. Conner’s father, and Le’Ann’s husband, Phillip Larry Koss, has also been arrested and is facing charges of possession of marijuana with intent to sell. He is still awaiting sentencing in the case.
These charges and sentences are not uncommon in the state. In fact, according to the website of the Law Offices of Kyle Sampson, a Houston criminal defense lawyer, law enforcement officers in Texas take marijuana-related charges extremely seriously, and often impose extremely harsh penalties on those who are convicted on marijuana-related charges.
