WORTHINGTON - Michael Zimmerman, 52, of Baltimore, Md. was granted a statutory stay of adjudication Tuesday in Nobles County District Court.

 

Zimmerman had entered a guilty plea for a felony drug charge after a Minnesota state patrolman discovered 242 grams of marijuana, 60 grams of marijuana wax, five grams of butane hash oil, two grams of THC shatter and drug paraphernalia in his car.

 

Fifth Judicial District Judge Gordon Moore granted the statutory stay of adjudication primarily because Zimmerman had no prior felony drug charges on his record. Zimmerman, who had been in Nobles County Jail for 32 days, faces three years of supervised probation. Zimmerman said he intended to take a bus to Maryland Tuesday night and will serve supervised probation in his home state.
