The indictment charges Simpson with trafficking marijuana over 8 ounces and less than five pounds, Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders told the paper. This is a felony with a punishment of one to five years in prison. The indictment comes nearly four months after federal authorities confiscated a package containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana that had been shipped from California to his northern Kentucky home. Investigators also found 6 more pounds of pot inside the house, as well as drug paraphernalia such as packaging materials, scales and smoking devices.
