Unicoi teen gets 8 years for selling psychedelic mushrooms

September 13, 2004

ROGERSVILLE (AP) -- A Hawkins County judge has sentenced a teen to eight years in prison for selling psychedelic mushrooms.

Eighteen-year-old Michael Lee Long of Unicoi pleaded guilty to lesser charges of possession and intent to deliver.


Long will be eligible for parole after serving a third of his sentence.


Assistant District Attorney Doug Godbee says psychedelic drug arrests are unusual in Hawkins County.


But Godbee says the sentence imposed Monday should caution potential dealers that punishment is stiff.

I'm not too surprised - Hawkins county is known for its "hanging judges" and its rednecks. Poor guy, though. What a bullshit sentence...

pleading guilty= dumb idea... always push for a trial... they won't give you one, but they'll set a date, and they'll offer better and better deals to you as the trial date draws near just to avoid giving you one...

this kid probably had a public defender who told him that the judge would be more lenient if he pleaded guilty...

public defenders like to tell people that because it lessens their workload

The Williamson County Review Appeal
Teen gets eight years for psychedelic mushrooms


ROGERSVILLE (AP) ? A Hawkins County teenager was sentenced to eight years in prison for dealing psychedelic mushrooms.

Martin Lee Long, 18, of Unicoi, was sentenced Monday by Circuit Court Judge James Beckner to the eight-year term and a $2,225 fine.

He pleaded guilty to possession of Schedule I narcotics with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia. The narcotics were psilocybin mushrooms.

Assistant District Attorney Doug Godbee said he wanted to send a message.

"It's listed as a Schedule I narcotic, which means it is deemed among the most dangerous narcotics out there," Godbee said of the mushrooms.

"These mushrooms are basically the same as LSD in that people who take them hallucinate and seriously threaten the safety of themselves and people around them. This is a drug we definitely want to prevent from taking a foothold in our communities."

Long will be eligible for parole after serving 30 percent of his sentence.

I always thought that pleading guilty, would be smarter than pleading not guilty then losing.

Thats what they want you to think. Truth is, the lowest sentences are given to those who plead not guilty, and then are offered deals. Next are people who plead not guilty and are found guilty at trial. The worst sentences by far go to those who plead guilty on their first court appearance.

One of the reasons marijuana is illegal today because growers in the 30s lobbied against hemp farmers -- they saw it as competition, because It is not chemically addictive as is nicotine, alcohol, or caffeine.

30 percent of that sentence is 1 year, so he is eligable for parole after that according to those reports. Why he agreed to pay 2k in fines instead of taking that fine money and getting a better lawyer is beyond me.
