Lafayette attorney Daniel Stanford's synthetic marijuana trial began this week in federal court.
According to KATC's news partner, The Acadiana Advocate, Stanford is accused of making a lot of money from illegal synthetic marijuana sales at Curious Goods stores around Acadiana.
Stanford, who The Advocate notes is defending himself, is the only defendant left in the case after a second defendant, attorney Barry Domingue, killed himself during the first trial.
All others charged in the case have pleaded guilty. That includes Richard Buswell, who owned the Curious Goods stores franchise that sold Mr. Miyagi, the synthetic marijuana involved in the case.
Stanford told the jury in opening statements that he is "absolutely not guilty of any of this."
