Charge could bring second life sentence for area man
A Perryville, Mo., man faces a second life sentence for distributing marijuana. Randall L. Doan, 42, was charged on Oct. 21 with one count of intent to distribute more than 5 grams of marijuana, which is a class B felony under state statutes. Because he was a prior offender on felony drug charges, the charges were enhanced to a class A felony.
Officers served a search warrant on Oct. 21 at his home at 1400 S. Kingshighway, Apt. 36, and found a quarter-pound of marijuana, that Doan had arranged to sell to an undercover officer, according to the probable cause statement. Doan reportedly sold a half ounce of marijuana to an undercover officer on Oct. 18, and was charged with a class A felony for the offense. He faces a life sentence if convicted of that crime, too. On a prior offense, Doan pleaded guilty in a Florida circuit court to possession of marijuana in 1998. He is being held on a $50,000 cash-only bond.
