The following day, Aldo was caught trying to sell some of that marijuana on the street, and in an attempt to curry good favor with law enforcement, he led police to Zainal’s house where they found the rest of his stash. Aldo told police the marijuana belonged to Zainal, who was promptly arrested.
He was tried and convicted of drug trafficking and sentenced to a term of years; the prosecution appealed , asking the court to impose a harsher sentence. The appellate court obliged and sentenced him to death. Zainal’s lawyer then filed an appeal, and Zainal waited for his day in court. He waited, and waited, and waited, but that a never came –not really.
