The president of three, now-closed, medical marijuana cooperatives in San Bernardino County will face drug trafficking charges Tuesday in court.
Aaron Sandusky, who ran G3 Holistic, Inc. in Upland, Colton and Moreno Valley, could be sentenced from 10 years to life in prison if found guilty.
Jury selection is scheduled Tuesday for the trial that will be in front of U.S. District Judge Percy Anderson.
Sandusky and five others affiliated with G3 were arrested and indicted in June on federal charges of drug-trafficking as well as conspiracy to manufacture and possess with intent to distribute marijuana.
The defendants, including Sandusky’s brother, Keith, were also charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana.
Sandusky ran a warehouse in Ontario, but the Upland location was the only one in operation when he was arrested.
Sandusky’s attorney, Roger Jon Diamond, said the federal government led his client to believe that the executive branch would not enforce federal medical marijuana law in California.
