Texan convicted of Nebraska pot charge

LINCOLN, NE

The Lincoln Journal Star says Forrest Jones, of Emory, Texas, was found guilty on Tuesday of possession with intent to deliver. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 31.

Authorities say Jones and a companion, Michael Shaw, of Muscatine, Iowa, were arrested in March 2011 after a Nebraska state trooper pulled over a rental car being driven by Jones. Shaw pleaded guilty after making a deal with prosecutors and was given 16 to 32 months in prison.
