Feds Drop Charges Against 19-Year-Old Devontre Thomas
Federal prosecutors in Oregon have dropped all charges against a 19-year-old Native American teenager accused of possessing less than a gram of cannabis after a national outcry led members of the state’s congressional delegation to speak out.
Devontre Thomas, who graduated from Chemawa Indian School earlier this year, has entered into a pretrial diversion agreement with the Oregon U.S. attorney’s office.
Under the terms of the agreement, the government will dismiss the pending charge if Thomas obeys all laws and remains at work or in school for the next 60 days, according to a document filed Thursday in federal court.
