The Region : D.A. Won’t Charge Parents in ‘Pot’ Case
Felony charges will not be filed against the parents of an 11-year-old Los Angeles girl who led police earlier this week to marijuana plants growing in her family’s backyard, the district attorney’s office announced. No evidence was found of any crime committed by the girl’s mother, officials said.
