% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A jury has found Leslie Junior Cox guilty of Trafficking in Methamphetamine in a quantity of over 400 grams, Possession of Marijuana up to an ounce, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and Possession  of Methamphetamine with Intent to Manufacture, Sell and Deliver.  I’ll have the exact nature of the charges late Monday morning and a short narrative of the trial later in the week.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Eric Bellas.

After the jury was dismissed, Judge Gregory Cox sentenced Leslie Junior Cox to not less than 225 months nor more than 282 months in the North Carolina department of Adult Corrections. Cox was also fined $350,000, ordered to pay attorney fees of $4,760, a $600 Lab Fee to the NC SBI Crime Lab. He was also given credit for 329 days of pretrial custody toward his sentence.
His attorney, Stephanie Lepres, filed a notice of appeal and asked that an appeals attorney be assigned to his case.
