JC was charged with First Degree Conspiracy to distribute 9 ounces of cocaine. A government informant set up a deal to buy 5 pounds of marijuana from JC. This deal, if completed the way originally intended would have resulted in a charge of 5th degree sale/possession which is a low level felony with a probationary sentence. The government in their infinite wisdom through DEA agents decided to up the ante and change the deal for nine ounces of cocaine. The actual cocaine came from the evidence locker of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. By changing the deal the government changed the potential charges to First Degree sale/possession which would result in a guideline sentence of 86 months.
