Ronald Dell, who is charged with possession, dealing in, taking steps to export and trafficking ganja, is to be sentenced in August.

Meanwhile, the trial of his co-accused, police Sergeant Christopher McDaniel and Tyee Kameka, who are facing the same charges, began in court yesterday with parish judge Sharon Barnes presiding.

The trial is to continue in August.
