bobandtorey Posted September 29, 2013 Report Share Posted September 29, 2013 CADILLAC — The owner of a now closed marijuana dispensary in Cadillac has pleaded guilty to a drug charge. The plea was entered Friday in 28th Circuit Court in Wexford County by Christopher Frank Gee, 36, according to court records. Gee, who was the owner of the Twinn Bridges Compassion Club in Haring Township, pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting delivery/manufacture of marijuana. According to a brief filed by Assistant Attorney General Paul Cusick, Gee facilitated transfer of marijuana to customers. At issue, Cusick said, was that neither Gee nor his employees were connected in any way to the customers through the state's registration process that was established under the medical marijuana statute. Charges against Gee previously had been dismissed after a successful defense by his attorney, Jessie L. Williams, of Traverse City. At sentencing, Gee could face up to four years in prison and/or a fine of up to $20,000. Nine counts of aiding and abetting delivery/manufacturing of marijuana, as well as a charge of racketeering, were dismissed. Missaukee County Prosecuting Attorney William Donnelly Jr. served as special prosecutor because one of Gee’s employees had previously been represented by attorney Anthony Badovinac prior to his taking office as Wexford County prosecuting attorney. http://www.cadillacnews.com/news_story/?story_id=1812867&year=2013&issue=20130928 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
