Joseph Bott, Minot, receives deferred sentence for intent to deliver marijuana
Joseph Thomas Bott, 38, Minot, received a deferred imposition of sentence for two years and two years of supervised probation for intent to deliver marijuana in March.
Judge Richard Hagar also ordered Bott to obtain a chemical dependency evaluation and to pay $1,350 in court costs.
If he successfully completes probation, the charge will be dismissed.
According to the probable cause affidavit filed with the court, police raided a Minot residence and found multiple pounds of marijuana in bud, ground, hash, BHO, edible forms, and hundreds of pre-rolled joints that were individually packaged, marijuana smoking devices including bongs, vaporizers, and joints, digital scales and marijuana grinders, a glass smoking device with suspected methamphetamine residue, and $5,875 in currency in the bedroom and on Bott’s person. The search also turned up two pounds of marijuana in a package addressed to Heather Thorson, the resident of the address, who was not present during the search.
Thorson received a deferred imposition of sentence for three years for intent to deliver marijuana in July. She was also ordered to serve 30 days in jail as a condition of supervised probation.
