A Spokane, Washington man busted in a federal marijuana sting and looking at a prison sentence figured what the hell, it couldn’t hurt to make a request. He asked to go to Disneyland.
Scott Nicholas Cassell, 29, got his wish, reports Meghann Cuniff at The Spokesman-Review.
Two weeks before a judge will likely approve a plea bargain that will land him behind bars for five years, Cassell left for Southern California over the weekend.
U.S. Magistrate Cynthia Imbrogno granted a motion late last month for Cassell to travel to the Happiest Place On Earth for a week with his mother, wife and six-year-old daughter.
“What he’s doing is good for him and good for the family,” said Cassell’s lawyer, David Miller.
“His young daughter can’t be around her dad for awhile; how sad is that?” Miller said. “This will put a good memory in the memory bank.”
Cassell said the trip will “provide one great final memory for our daughter prior to my leaving,” according to court documents.
