An Aurora shop owner who sold a teen synthetic marijuana hours before his death now won’t be sentenced until the new year.
Cigar Box owner Ruby Mohsin and employee Mohammad Khan both pleaded guilty in February agreements to conspiracy to distribute the synthetic drug, which Aurora college student Max Dobner, 19, bought at the store inside the Fox Valley Mall in 2011 and smoked with a friend before he crashed his car into a North Aurora house.
Mohsin and Khan each face a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a fine of $250,000.
Mohsin’s sentencing began last week and was scheduled to continue Nov. 28, but Judge Charles R. Norgle Sr. has agreed to postpone it until Jan. 4, according to an order entered Tuesday. Court documents do not explicitly indicate why the sentencing was pushed back. Khan is still scheduled for sentencing Nov. 28.
In their pleas, Mohsin and Khan said they sold products including iAroma, Zero Gravity and Head Trip, which were labeled as potpourri and not for human consumption, knowing customers were buying them
