New York Accountant Convicted Of Marijuana Distribution In Louisa

A man who worked as an accountant in New York is guilty of bringing marijuana into Louisa County.  39-year-old Winston Nugent will spend three years in prison after he was caught with over 15 pounds of marijuana.  Louisa prosecutor Rusty McGuire says Nugent rented a car in New York last December and drove to Louisa where he was met by agents with the county narotics task force.  McGuire says Nugent had drug charges in the past, but he eventually got his college degree and had a good job as an accountant.
