Flat out. I don’t care what your political leanings are. This is wrong.
Al Gore‘s son pleaded guilty Monday to possessing marijuana and other drugs, but a judge said the plea could be withdrawn and the charges dropped if he successfully completes a drug diversion program.
Authorities have said they found drugs in Al Gore III’s car after the 24-year-old was pulled over on July 4 for going 100 mph in his Toyota Prius.
He pleaded guilty Monday to two felony counts of drug possession, two misdemeanor counts of drug possession without a prescription, and one misdemeanor count of marijuana possession, the district attorney’s office said.
Jaime Coulter, senior deputy district attorney, said Gore’s sentencing will be continued until Feb. 7. If he has complied with all the conditions of the diversion program, the sentencing will be continued again for another year, with charges possibly being dropped in 2009.
He has to complete another drug rehab program, and then when he finishes that he can withdraw his “guilty” plea and then charges could possibly be dropped.
So let’s recap … this is his THIRD offense.
He already completed a comprehensive drub rehab program once in lieu of prison.
He was speeding at 100 miles an hour.
he had an ounce of pot on him.
He had 4 prescription drugs on him, that weren’t prescribed to him.
His father used to be Vice-President.
He could have killed someone wasted and speeding at 100 MPH.
Oh to be rich, powerful and connected. You get 2nd chances and 3rd chances. If he wasn’t Al Gore’s son, he’d be sitting in jail now for up to 8 years.
