FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota couple accused of trying to sell marijuana obtained by a prescription in Washington state have filed an appeal with the state Supreme Court.
Brian Kuruc and Rebecca Larson, of Dickinson, entered conditional guilty pleas earlier this month. The pleas acknowledged possession of pot but denied intent to distribute.
They were arrested in January at a Casselton motel.
The appeal is based on two opinions by East Central District Judge Wickham Corwin, including one memorandum that said the jury could not be told that the marijuana prescription was a valid defense.
Kuruc's attorney, Mark Friese, says his client hopes the appeal will result in "straightforward application of the law to the facts of his case.''
