American Tourist Gets Six Months Prison in Bali Marijuana Bust

(9/25/2012) The Denpasar District Court has sentenced a 54-year-old U.S. Citizen to 6 months imprisonment after finding him guilty of marijuana possession.

Henry Rice Scobee heard his sentence on Thursday, September 20, 2012 in a trial that was precipitated by the man’s arrest on May 3, 2012, at Alex Home Stay on Jalan Raya Legian in Kuta.

According to Beritabali.com, police confiscated 0.98 grams of marijuana in a plastic bag found in a wooden box on a table in the man’s bedroom.
Scobee admitted ownership of the marijuana, saying he had bought the drugs for his own use from a stranger.

The six-month sentence was less than the 9 months demanded by prosecutors.
