Oklahoma man facing multiple life sentences for selling, possessing marijuana
ENID, Okla. – An Oklahoma man is facing multiple life sentences after police searched his home and found marijuana.
Michael Bourbonais, 44, was arraigned Thursday on a count of possession with intent to distribute within 2,000 feet of a school, two counts of distribution of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia, according to EnidNews.
He allegedly sold 4 grams of marijuana to two confidential informants with the Enid Police Department.
After the purchase, the Enid Police Department served a search warrant at Bourbonais’ home.
When officers searched the home, they say they found a black Colorado marijuana container which had 3.3 grams of marijuana inside, a glass marijuana pipe, and a 5-gallon bucket containing other Colorado marijuana containers. One of the containers allegedly had 11 grams of marijuana.
This isn’t the first time Bourbonais has been in trouble with the law. He has three prior felony convictions including violating the sex offender registration act, failure to comply with the sex offender registration act, and possession of stolen property.
Because of his previous convictions, Bourbonais is facing 12 years to life in prison for his possession with intent to distribute charge and six years to life in prison for each distribution charge.
