Gilmore Cox had a bad day in court on Wednesday. After he pled guilty last month to charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of transport chemicals with intent to manufacture, Angelina County district court judge Barry Bryan sentenced him to 35 years in prison. The case was meth-related.
And then Bryan turned around and sentenced him to 20 more years for yet another meth case. In that June 2010 incident, Angelina County cops had gone to serve a warrant on another miscreant and found Cox there high and with the remnants of his meth stash in his lap, according to one report.
No word on whether Cox plans to file an appeal based on discrimination against Cavemen.
