Christian Phillips Unjustly Accused of Illegal Bakers Dozen? ~by Legal Pub


Some kids just can't win. It is bad enough being a teenager and being punished for the mistakes you actually made. Poor Christian Phillips has apparently wrongfully accused of delivering LSD-laced cookies to a dozen police stations. Lab results confirm that no drugs were present in any of the cookies. Phillips, 18, had been held in jail on $75,000 bond based on a charge of tampering with a consumer product. Lake Worth Police have dropped the charges against Phillips.


How did this mess get started? Christian was arrested Tuesday after police officers apparently thought the container smelled like marijuana . Preliminary tests apparently erroneously detected LSD. Christian Phillips had delivered the cookies on June 27 as part of his community service program.

Did anyone eat the cookies? Apparently four officers ate cookies and their were no reports of sickness or testing positive for drugs.
Was it a huge rush to judgment as Glenn Phillips (Christian's Dad) suggests? Rumor has it that some one may have been smoking marijuana while the baking was being done. Phillips has consistently denied contaminating the cookies. Ironically, Phillips was apparently giving the cookies to police as part of a Mothers Against Drunk Driving community service project.

What is to become of Phillips? He is free. Charges have all been dropped. Phillips graduated from high school in May and plans to attend college.

Kids get accused of a lot of things that they did not do! Sounds like they owe the kid an apology.

Freedom. Just like the hostages released from Colombian guerillas?

The old rush to judgment. I am always amazed at impatience in charging someone. The old saying "measure twice, cut once", is so true. Authorities should check things out thoroughly before they charge someone. Whats the hurry?

Cookies that smell like they're laced, but they're not. I'll take a dozen. :)
