Marijuana Found On Man In Court On Pot Charge

Posted: Updated:
ORANGEBURG, S.C. -

Authorities say they found a bag of marijuana on a man as they searched him in court not long after he pleaded guilty to simple possession of marijuana.

The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg reports 24-year-old old Jovon Graham was in Orangeburg City Court on Tuesday, pleading guilty to simple possession of marijuana.

A judge ordered him to pay half of his $813 fine or start a possible 70-day jail sentence. As officers searched him, they found a bag of marijuana and Graham went to jail on another simple possession charge.

Graham had a bond hearing Wednesday. When the judge asked if he had been arrested before, he said "same charge." Graham remains behind bars. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
