No-contest plea in marijuana case

November 20, 2009


One of two Baker University students accused of running a marijuana-growing operation out of a Baldwin City home has entered a plea in the case.

According to Douglas County court records, Rai Shed Abdu Yahia waived his right to a preliminary hearing earlier this week and entered a no-contest plea to possession of controlled substances and drug paraphernalia charges.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 22.

A co-defendant in the case, Alexander Abbas Fouad Farran, has applied for diversion and will be back in court Dec. 28.

Baldwin City police said they found 28 marijuana plants and grow lights in September inside the students’ home in the 400 block of Eisenhower.
