Elisa Kappelmann, a local woman we first introduced you to in July of last year, was vindicated Monday when a jury returned a verdict of not guilty of all charges of possession and distribution of marijuana.
Kappelmann used to co-own Southern Colorado Medical Marijuana with her partner Don McKay, but was forced to take her name off of all paperwork. She now gets a second start with the end of her multi-year ordeal, that, like the similar case of cancer patient Bob Crouse, often included courthouse protests organized by local advocacy group Coloradans 4 Cannabis Patient Rights.
In the video below, taken immediately after the end of the trial, she has these words for the Fourth Judicial District Attorney: "Actually, I think we have a prosecutor in this town who doesn't follow the law, he follows his own agenda," she says. "Dan May's corrupt."
