Students arrested for pot in parking lot

Two students, caught Jan. 25 with marijuana in the Douglas High School parking lot, were ordered Monday to maintain "C" grade averages in order to keep misdemeanor drug arrests off their records.

Trevor McNabb, 18, and Ryan McPeek, 18, were arrested Friday afternoon when the school attendance officer saw them in a vehicle in the parking lot near the swim center and wondered why they weren't in class.

McNabb was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

McPeek was charged with possession of marijuana.

They both pleaded guilty Monday before East Fork Justice Jim EnEarl who deferred sentencing until Dec. 19.

According to reports, deputies confiscated two plastic bags with marijuana, a glass pipe, rolling papers and $200 cash.

Originally, they were jailed on $26,000 bail each.

The teenagers were fined $632 each and ordered to attend Victims Educating Drug Offenders on Feb. 11.

They are under adult probation supervision.

McNabb, a former Douglas County Sheriff's Explorer, told EnEarl he used $200 in Christmas money to purchase the marijuana.

McNabb said he had failed English, but was attending night school to get caught up so he can graduate with his class.

EnEarl ordered McNabb and McPeek, who pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana, to earn at least a "C" average.

Both students must submit their report cards to EnEarl.

He also ordered McPeek to get a haircut.

The judge said sentencing would be deferred until Dec. 19 when he ordered both defendants to return to court.

If they comply with all court orders, and don't violate any laws, McPeek and McNabb have an opportunity to withdraw their guilty pleas.
