An admitted drug dealer changed his plea yesterday in 4th Judicial District Court on four separate felony counts. 33-year-old Marcus Cobb entered his guilty pleas as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.
The charges are based on an incident last October where authorities responded to a report of suspects smoking marijuana in a white Cadillac parked behind Quizno’s. The car was registered to Cobb and a subsequent search resulted in the seizure of 15 separate baggies full of marijuana.
According to the plea agreement Cobb would be sentenced to 4 to 6 years in prison on each of the three counts of delivery and 4 to 5 years on the felony possession count. All the sentences will run concurrently according to the agreement. District Court Judge John Fenn ordered a pre-sentence investigation and the court will decide whether or not to accept the agreement next month.
In other court proceedings, 19-year-old Tiffany Defeyter (dee-FIGHT-er) pled not-guilty to a burglary charge. Defeyter is accused of entering several vehicles last April, looking for items or cash to steal. She did not have permission to enter any of the vehicles. A trial date has been sent for December 1st in District Court. Defeyter faces a possible 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted.
