Robert McCoy, an unsuccessful Libertarian candidate for the state legislature, pleaded guilty to three drug changes and received a sentence of 15-30 days in jail and a fine of $5,000 a year and a half after his young daughter was found handing out pot candy to her classmates on the bus. McCoy also faced separate charges of felony criminal endangerment after being arrested last August for a road rage incident. He pleaded no contest in that case.

McCoy was one of four family members arrested in the pot candy distribution ring, even though he and his wife, Andrea, were out of the country at the time the incident occurred. Ravalli County police searched the McCoy home and found twice the legal amount of medical marijuana as well as a small amount of hashish. They arrested sister-in-law, Karen Fisher, also an unsuccessful Libertarian candidate for office, and her husband, Jeffrey, for an illegal growing operation.

On the same day McCoy entered his plea, wife Andrea failed to successfully ask District Judge Jeffrey Langton to disallow the jury’s guilty verdict on grounds of insufficient evidence. Both Andrea McCoy and the Fishers were convicted of felony drug charges in separate trials.
