Last December, a Pinehurst, North Carolina, businessman pleaded guilty to possession of more than 220 pounds of marijuana, conspiracy to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to launder monetary instruments. We talked about this case on our blog the end of April. The plea agreement, according to a U.S. Attorney's Office spokesman, will remain sealed until the judge accepts it.
The man's sentencing hearing has been rescheduled again, and this time, it's set for Aug. 15. There was no reason given other than it was due to "the discretion of the court."
