Tuesday evening, December 5th at 7 p.m. Officer Hubbard with the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department stopped a vehicle for speeding.
Speaking with the driver, it was learned that 61-year-old Michael D. Goldman of Las Vegas did not have a valid driver’s license and he had marijuana in plain view of the officer.
Mr. Goldman admitted to smoking marijuana, so Field Sobriety Tests were conducted. A search of the vehicle located other Legend Drugs.
Michael Goldman was transported to the Marshall County Jail with Criminal Charges of Possession of a Legend Drug, Possession of Marijuana, Operating on a suspended/revoked License, and Operating a Vehicle While Intoxicated. He was held on a $1,500 cash bond.
Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
