Reuben Houston Convicted and Sentenced on Drug Charges

His punishment is a joke, but he was in fact proven guilty. The San Diego Union-Tribune has the story.
A former Georgia Tech football star was sentenced to nine months probation on felony drug charges connected to a marijuana-distribution ring.

Reuben Houston, 23, was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court to charges of conspiracy and attempt to distribute 92 pounds of marijuana. He pleaded guilty to the charges after his June arrest.
I'm sure a segment of the Techies will see this as a win for Reuben's innocence since he only got 9 months probation. But a conviction on "charges of conspiracy and attempt to distribute 92 pounds of marijuana" sticks with you the rest of your life. The San Diego paper got the story from the AP.

He better work his ass off to make it in the NFL, because finding a job after that will get just a bit tougher.

Let me make sure I'm crystal-clear on this. Darrius Swain gets nabbed three times over the course of two years for driving on a suspended license, and spends 45 days in jail. But Ruben Houston drives around with a pot stash weighing as much as two small children, and gets . . . no jail time whatsoever?

Two words: completely retarded.

You guys are missing the point. Ian Smith's actions caused COUNTLESS men anguish by not being able to head to the can and shake the dew off the lilly in a timely manner. Swain was trying to skirt those pesky laws that force us to have valid DL's. Plus he probably changed lanes too quickly or something. How DARE those guys! Houston was simply trying to introduce a bunch of nerds to the joys of medicinal marijuana so they can ease the pain of losing, like, a hundred games in a row to the Dawgs. I say Houston's a hero!

Hmmm....... Kyle's still right. Ridiculous.
But we should get that judge's number - the one who forced Tech to make him play. We could use a guy like that.
