Kevin Bay, the man accused of distributing synthetic drugs in Stoddard County, had his court appearance continued Thursday morning.
But what's interesting is why the continuance was granted.
One of Bay's attorneys is Mike Colona, the Minority Whip in the Missouri House of Representatives. He could not appear because the Missouri legislature is in special session.
In August, officers raided Bay's business, Bocomo Bay, and seized thousands of dollars worth of synthetic drugs.
Stoddard County Prosecutor Russ Oliver says Bay distributed those drugs in Stoddard County.
The raid was conducted after Missouri's new synthetic drug law was enacted. Representative Colona was one of just 13 members of the house to vote against the bill.
