Frequently Asked Questions

On Nov. 1st, 2012, Oshan Anand Cook was convicted of distributing psychedelic drugs during a 2nd jury trial and was taken into custody that day. He was sentenced to 151 months (12 years, 7 months) in federal prison. His sentence has since been reduced to 121 months (10 years, 1 month) due to a reform in sentencing guidelines. After reductions for good behavior and prison programs, Oshan will probably serve just under 7 1/2 years in prison on this sentence. He will likely be released to a Bay Area halfway house in January 2020."

Oshan has NO access to the internet or his Facebook account. If you see things posted on Facebook it’s because Oshan’s friends or family posted it.
