Ryan David Frederick, 28, is charged with first-degree murder, using a gun during a felony and possession of marijuana.
Please take note that he was NOT charged with GROWING marijuana…which is what the “Confidential Informant” had reported and the “investigation” was supposedly about…only possession.
As far as I can tell, his only crime is to have been in possession of a firearm while in possession of a controlled substance, and mistaking police for intruders and defending himself against them.
He’s pretty much guaranteed to be found guilty of the first, the facts of that are undeniable. Hopefully a jury will show some reason and common sense and acquit him of the First Degree Murder charge…but I’m not holding my breath.
