Teen accused of baking pot brownies may not face life in prison

A first degree felony charge that carried up to life in prison has been dropped against a Round Rock teen accused of baking pot brownies. Williamson County Assistant D.A. Mark Brunner says they decided instead to pursue the second degree felony charge of possession of hash oil and the state felony charge of possession of marijuana against Jacob Lavoro. But he has been offered a plea deal. Brunner says,"We can't make somebody take a plea bargain. He certainly has a right to a trial. If he wants to go to trial we're happy to try the case, or the cases, and we'll proceed from there." Brunner says under the plea deal, Lavoro would get 10 years deferred adjudication. If the case goes to trial and he's found guilty, Lavoro faces 2 to 20 years for the THC and six months to two years for possession of marijuana.
