It looks like City Attorney Carmen Trutanich finally got his man, and even though 2009 Mayoral Candidate Craig X. Rubin repeatedly professes his claims of innocence, a judge did not see it the same way.
Rubin reports to jail on Friday. He is expected to do 6 months, but he hopes to be released sooner.
The arrest and prosecution of Rubin has had a chilling effect on the medical marijuana community, with some dispensary owners choosing to shut down or move rather than face legal action.
Rubins predicament is a bit odd, as his charges were actually dropped. He is going in on a probation violation -- just for being arrested. Somehow , this does not seem Constitutional to me.
Kind of similar to the double jeopardy clauses or something.
When asked for a comment, his former political rival David Saltsburg (also known as Zuma Dogg) repeated that this event has "reinforced his belief in Quantum Physics and Karma".
