Oshan was sentenced to 151 months in federal prison on April 26th. The appeal is in process.
Oshan Cook was arrested April 22nd, 2010 by the DEA for allegedly distributing psychedelics (wholesale quantities of LSD & MDMA).
Oshan had pled not-guilty and continued to do so in the appeal. The first stage of the appeal was denied in September 2015.
These charges have absolutely nothing to do with Oshan’s business, Om Shan Tea.
Oshan had a Jury Trial the week of July 23rd, 2012 with Judge Jeffrey S. White (SF Federal District).
Oshan’s first trial concluded with a hung jury with at least 3 jurors for not guilty, which resulted in a mistrial.
The Prosecutors AUSA Chinhayi Cadet and AUSA Pete Axelrod decided to retry the case and Oshan was found guilty.
