SLAP ON THE HAND FOR 8.8 KILOS OF COCAINE

VogelCassie_thumb

On Thursday, September 15, 2011  at approximately 8:30 am, the Conroe Police Narcotics Unit arrested a man and seized 8.8 kilograms of cocaine. The drugs have an estimated street value of 1.3 million dollars.

Narcotics Officers were conducting a drug investigation in the 1000 block of S. Frazier St. when the department narcotics K-9, “Cassie”, alerted her handler, Officer Clyde Vogel, to a bag which contained the cocaine. Investigation subsequently led officers to the bag’s owner, Morris Alexander Wise, a 31 year old black male from Chicago, Illinois. Morris was arrested and charged with Aggravated Possession of a Controlled Substance, a 1st degree felony charge.

In December 2011 Wise posted a bond of $300,000 and was released from the Montgomery County Jail.

On Monday Wise appeared with his attorney Michael McDougal  Wise plead nolo contendere to possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance over 400 grams, which carries a possible penalty of 15 to 99 years, or life in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. The court also has the discretion to withhold a finding of guilt and place him on deferred adjudication.

That option is exactly what Judge Hamilton did. Wise was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 10 years deferred adjudication.

This was a first time Wise had ever been in trouble. The judge also took into consideration his employment record showed he had been gainfully employed since high school and graduating college,

She also considered the fact that he remained living in Chicago and traveled to Conroe for each hearing.

    What a bunch of ‘you know what!’ Send people to prison for a long time for possession of marijuana and then do this for cocaine–could he use all of that? What is wrong with this country and it’s ‘justice’ system? I guess if you are ‘gainfully employed’ and you attend the court hearing, you should get a slap on the hand–not. Wonder what ‘connections’ Wise has with those in power? Getting off on something like this just reinforces someone’s behavior. They think they are Wise-er than others.

    Good job judge. Did you know that Ted Bundy once worked as an operator for a crisis hotline center, and later was pursuing a law degree? Maybe you would have let him off light too.

    This angel will no doubt be Pope some day and it just ain’t right to have something like transporting coke tripping him up his walk to sainthood. Glad Hamilton’s YOUR neighbor and NOT mine.
