Judge tosses charges against marijuana activist

The Associated Press Published: October 19, 2013

DENVER — A Denver County judge has overturned a property destruction conviction against marijuana activist Robert Corry, citing a lack of evidence.

A jury convicted Corry on Tuesday. He was arrested in June and charged with smashing the window of a recreational vehicle.

The Denver Post reports (http://tinyurl.com/qfsjtlq ) that the vehicle's owner testified he didn't see the incident and thought it was an accident. Judge Raymond Satter overturned the verdict.

The 46-year-old Corry has protested a ballot measure to tax recreational marijuana when it becomes legal next year.

Corry returns to court later this month. He's charged with publicly consuming pot at Coors Field in September.
