A Kansas man has been sent to federal prison for nearly eight years for possessing bath salts in Nebraska before they specifically were made illegal by state and federal law.
“This is not your run of the mill drug case,” Steven Miles Sullivan’s attorney, Glenn Shapiro, said at sentencing last week. “He thought he was complying with the law.”
That’s because when a deputy stopped Sullivan on Oct. 27, 2010, in Otoe County and Sullivan said he had K2 and a bag of bath salts in his vehicle neither was illegal.
Both are now, under both state and federal law.
