A Minden man has been found guilty of several drug charges, but not guilty of others.
Keddrick Kennon was found guilty of distribution of Schedule II CDS and possession of Schedule II CDS (cocaine).
“Additionally, the jury found Mr. Kennon not guilty of an additional count of distribution of Schedule II CDS (cocaine) and not guilty of distribution of a substance falsely represented as a controlled dangerous substance,” according to a news release from the district attorney’s office.
District Attorney Schuyler Marvin candidly recognizes there were issues with the video evidence related to the two charges in which the jury came back with a not guilty verdict and respects their decision.
“I want to especially thank Captain Dan Weaver, who served as my case agent,” Marvin said.
“The narcotics guys at the Minden Police Department did an excellent job in staying focused on drug dealers in Minden. I think this will send a strong message to those who want to venture into the drug trade.”
Kennon is scheduled for sentencing June 1, and subsequent to that, Marvin intends to file a habitual offender bill.
Kennon went to trial before 26th Judicial District Court Judge Parker Self.
