Pretrial offer withdrawn in local medical marijuana case

BEAUMONT-- The Jefferson County District Attorney's Office has withdrawn a pre-trial offer in the medical marijuana case of Jeremy Bourque and the case has been placed on the docket for trial.


According to a release from Jefferson County District Attorney Bob Wortham's office, an order for a pre-trial diversion had been given to attorney Dustin Galmor and his client, Jeremy Bourque, with provisions that had not been previously reviewed or approved by Wortham.

After reviewing the pre-trial offer, it was withdrawn and the case put on the court docket for trial.

"Correct application of Texas law is paramount regardless of a defendant's alleged medical marijuana issues," the release from D.A. Wortham's office said.

Bourque's residence in Port Acres was raided in early 2014 and police seized three marijuana plants that he used to treat epilepsy.


Earlier this month Assistant District Attorney Cory Crenshaw approved a pre-trial diversion -- an offer putting Bourque in a probation program instead of prosecuting him.


The offer also allowed Bourque to use marijuana to treat his epilepsy.


The offer was approved after Bourque's attorney forwarded to Crenshaw an affidavit from a neurologist with experience in studying the effects of cannabis on epilepsy and other conditions.
