Last year 19-year-old Saira Munoz held a bake sale. She was planning to use the proceeds to buy her dream dress for prom. Sadly, her plan backfired when it was discovered Munoz was actually selling pot brownies. Who was the narc? Another student, but he only ratted after he was rushed to the hospital.
That must have been some brownie.
The hits keep coming. Munoz’s charges include employing a minor to traffic drugs (she hired a younger student to do the selling), which is considered a felony.
On April 7, Munoz was sentenced to four years of probation and nine days in jail, but the consequences for her entrepreneurial spirit could be much more dire. Since Munoz is an immigrant, a felony conviction could cost her the visa that had allowed her to stay in the United States. Immigration officials say they are still reviewing the case.
The hospitalized student, Carlos Robles, supports and defends his friend, Munoz, saying, “People make mistakes. There’s people that deserve to be deported, and she just wasn’t one of them. There’s people that do way worse.”
