According to the news report:
Cornell Hood II just couldn’t stay out of trouble.
Hood moved from eastern New Orleans to the Slidell area after he admitted to separate charges of distribution of marijuana and possession with intent to distribute marijuana on Dec. 18, 2009, in Orleans Parish Criminal District Court. He received a suspended five-year prison sentence and five years’ of probation for each — which was precisely the same penalty he got in that court after pleading guilty to possessing and intending to distribute marijuana on Feb. 22, 2005.
When Hood switched homes, he also requested a new probation officer based in St. Tammany. Authorities granted the wish, and the officer, Dustin Munlin, drove to Hood’s place for a routine visit on Sept. 27, 2010. Munlin found nearly two pounds of pot throughout the house, according to court records. He alerted Sheriff’s Office deputies. Prosecutors later charged him with one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
At his trail which lasted one day Cornell was charged with one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana which usually results in less than 15 year sentence but in New Orleans people are subject to life imprisonment after being convicted three or more times of a crime that carries a sentence exceeding 10 years.
