LIVINGSTON COUNTY – A Caledonia man who was arrested as part of the 2015 Drug Task Force Spring Roundup pled guilty and was sentenced Thursday morning for selling a substance containing more than 25 grams of marijuana to an undercover police officer.
Shane Curts, 23, was sentenced to 5 months of weekends at the Livingston County Jail and 5 years of probation, with work release eligibility, for Criminal Sale of Marijuana in the Third Degree.
Curts owes the Livingston County Drug Task Force the $560 that was used to purchase the mixtures.
Curts was originally arrested for this incident on May 22 on a Superior Court Warrant for Criminal Sale of Marihuana in the Third Degree, a class E felony, Criminal Sale of Marihuana in the Fourth Degree, a class A misdemeanor, Criminal Possession of Marihuana in the Fifth Degree, a class B misdemeanor, and Unlawful Possession of Marihuana, a Violation, and was remanded without bail at that time.
At arraignment, Curts repeatedly talked over Judge Dennis Cohen at arraignment, saying that he had not been read his rights and insisting “I did not sell 26.79 grams of marijuana.”
He admitted on Thursday to selling a substance containing 26.79 grams of marijuana to a member of the Drug Task Force.
