Is there something wrong with our judicial system?
Last October, a person was stopped for speeding on Pageland Highway, charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute, possession of marijuana and unlawful carrying of a pistol. The officer found marijuana, a bag of prescription pill bottles, a bag with $9,280 in cash and a gun.
Do you think this person is suffering the consequences? No, he was recommended for pre-trial intervention (PTI).
Again, I ask, is something wrong with our system?
