California Man Receives Ten Year Deferred Sentence for 200 Pounds of Marijuana

 

A California man charged with transporting more than a million dollars worth of marijuana through Wichita County received a ten year deferred sentence today.

Samuel Clauder is a former congressional aide, college professor and reporter and wasn't present for his first hearing. He entered the courtroom today with his dog. The judge told him to move the dog to the gallery. 

Clauder was arrested on Highway 287 near Iowa Park last February after a DPS trooper said he found seven duffel bags with almost 200 pounds of marijuana.

The trooper said Clauder was driving a minivan on the shoulder with plates that did not match. He asked to search the car when Clauder refused, he called for a K-9 who found narcotics.

Troopers say the marijuana was being transported from California to Florida.

"It's a very considerate and passionate plea bargain considering the conditions of my life," Samuel Clauder.
