Trial Date Set For Former Watertown Town Councilor Gus Bailey's Drug Case

Gus Bailey and his co-defendants in the marijuana distribution case may be moving to a jury trial in Boston Federal Court.

It appears former Watertown Town Councilor Thomas "Gus" Bailey will have his day in court as a date has been set for a jury trial in the federal drug case involving Bailey and his five co-defendants. 

Boston Federal Judge Ryan W. Zobel will preside over the trial, which is scheduled to start on May 13, 2013, according to federal court documents. 

The court date does not guarantee the case will actually go to trial, but is the first step in the process. The defendants could change their pleas to guilty and forgo a trial. Attorneys for Bailey and his co-defendants – Clay Gollobin, Eric Falzon, Mary Nicole Coman, Matthew Fox, Barbara Waldman – have until Jan. 30, 2013 to file motions to suppress in the case.

Also, the judge recently granted Bailey's motion have his attorney, Kevin Mahoney, taken off the case, according to court records. Bailey has retained a new attorney. 

Bailey, Falzon and Gobolin were arrested in October 2011 when Waltham Police raided a warehouse in the city where the three allegedly grew and sold the drug. 

 in July 2012 on charges connected to the case.

Bailey faces two counts of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute marijuana, two counts of distribution of marijuana and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Golobin, of Brookline, and Falzon, of Newton, each face two counts of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute marijuana. Coman, Bailey's ex-girlfriend, faces a count of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute marijuana and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering. 

Fox faces one count of conspiracy to manufacture and distribute marijuana. Waldman, Bailey's ex-wife, faces one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Funny skunk is legal now and you can score a bag or a brick in the bank parking lot and this guy is going away for a long time. Guess he got to big for the cops to ignore like they do most of the dealers.
