Rolla City Councilman Resigns Over Marijuana Conviction

Daniel Jones said he is right and the law is wrong.

But ultimately, he didnít think he would win a legal battle to keep his seat on the Rolla City Council.

He resigned Thursday night, on the eve of a hearing to determine whether he could continue to hold public office.

Phelps County Prosecutor Brendon Fox filed a petition against Jones saying his 2012 guilty plea to a felony cannabis possession charge made him ineligible to hold public office. Felons are not allowed to hold office in the state. The filing was in response to a complaint from local retired pastor Tim Cook.
