Lafayette Businessman Pleads Guilty To Drug Case
The U.S. Attorney's office in Lafayette says Daniel Paul Francis now faces up to five years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy charges related to selling synthetic marijuana.
In addition to the possible jail time, Francis also faces three years of supervised release and a fine up to $250,000. Sentencing for Francis is scheduled for May of this year.
As part of his guilty plea, Francis admitted to introducing misbranded drugs for sale. The product he was selling was called "Mr. Miyagi".
The product contained synthetic marijuana clearly labeled as "not for human consumption", but he sold it to people for consumption.
