Teen Gets 8 Years In Pot-Smoking Toddlers Case


July 24, 2008 By MELODY McDONALD


FORT WORTH -- One of the teens caught on video teaching his toddler nephews to smoke marijuana has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Demetris McCoy, 18, reached an agreement with prosecutors on Thursday afternoon and pleaded guilty to two charges of injury to a child/causing bodily injury. In exchange for the eight-year sentence, McCoy must also testify against his co-defendant, Vanswan Polty, officials said.

If McCoy had gone to trial and been convicted, he would have faced a maximum of 10 years in prison.

"I think Mr. McCoy recognized that a Tarrant County jury was not going to stand for his behavior and he did the proper thing by taking responsibility for his actions," said prosecutor Darrell Davila, who handled the case with Leticia Martinez.

McCoy, who was represented by defense attorney Ruben Gonzalez Jr., also pleaded to two charges of burglary of a habitation and received eight years in each of those cases, according to computerized court records. All the sentences will run at the same time.

McCoy and Polty were arrested in February 2007 after police found the video while executing a search warrant at the Watauga home of McCoy's grandmother. They were investigating burglaries that McCoy and Polty are suspected of committing.

The video shows Polty and McCoy coaxing McCoy's nephews to smoke marijuana. The boys, who were then 2 and 4 years old, had traces of marijuana and cocaine in their systems.

Polty, 19, remains in the Tarrant County Jail awaiting trial. He faces two charges of injury to a child, three charges of burglary of a habitation and one charge of failing to identify himself to a peace officer.

Relatives have said that the children's mother was shocked about the incident and was asleep in another room in the Watauga home, which she shared with her children, grandmother and McCoy at the time. Russell and the children's great-grandmother were not charged in the crime.

Child Protective Service removed the children from the home shortly after McCoy's arrest and sent them to live with foster parents.

I'd say 30 days in county jail and a couple of years supervision.

Re: Teen Gets 8 Years In Pot-Smoking Toddlers Case
that's pretty fucked up...

not only did the guy give young children weed, but he narced as well...

what a little fucking bitch.


Take the 10 year sentence and keep the little honour you have left, instead of getting 2 less years and removing every last speck of it.
I WILL NOT let consequences dictate my course of action!

What sucks is this is such a double standard! I'm not condoning giving pot to kids but if it were alcohol he would probably get a slap on the wrist and maybe have to do some community service! And alcohol is way more harmful than pot!
This country is just fucked up! We should follow Canada's lead and make it legal for those over 21...

I concur!

It's one thing to personally CHOOSE to smoke herb,...it's another to force a baby not old enough to understand.
anything after 'but' is bullshit!

From the article

Get real! They were babies and this is child abuse plain and simple. BTW I am for legalizing pot but this is not even an issue, they should have gotten 20 yrs Double standard my foot!

I think that's excessive. Ruin someone's life for a dumb act? No one was harmed at all. Pot is harmless. It's just such a racket.
