An actor is learning an ironic lesson about the consequences of his illegal actions down in Texas thanks to a 16-year prison sentence handed down by the courts, recently.
John R. Morales was the actor who took a bite out of crime as McGruff the Crime Dog, back in the day. In 2011, Morales was pulled over by police in Texas, who found blueprints for indoor marijuana-growing facilities and pot seeds in the car. What they found at his house, though, was a little more serious.
Authorities searched the guy's place and discovered more than 1,000 pot plants and an entire arsenal of weaponry, including a grenade launcher.
Police raided Morales’ home and found the multitude of marijuana plants, ammunition and weapons, which included a grenade launcher, according to court documents obtained by News Fix Now.
On Monday, the now 41-year-old former actor pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 16 years in prison.
Morales insisted that he was nonviolent, but U.S. District Judge Vanessa Gilmore stated that, “Everything I read about you makes you seem like a scary person."
