SF jury acquits man who forgot mushrooms were in his backpack

• Rawstory

On Friday, a jury in San Francisco found a man not guilty of possession of psilocybin mushrooms on the grounds that he had forgotten they were in his backpack, and therefore could not knowingly be in possession.

The argument was made by Deputy Public Defender Kimberly Lutes-Koths, who took on the case of Eric Meoli. Meoli was arrested for riding his bicycle on a BART platform on May 25. When he handed over his backpack to police, they found a small amount of "magic" mushrooms in an inner pocket.
