A Colorado School of Mines chemical engineering student remains in a Japanese jail after a friend of his says he mailed the student three cookies and four pieces of candy infused with marijuana.
Japanese prosecutors appear to be using the country’s very strict anti-drug laws to go after 25-year-old Tim Wilson. Wilson was attending Tohuku University in Sendai, Japan, as an exchange student when he was arrested back in August.
He’s remained in custody ever since.
"They keep pushing the trial back," his father Jeff Wilson said on Wednesday. "Originally, they told us it would be no later than Oct. 24. Then they told us December, and then two weeks ago we found out it would be in January."
