Marjorie Woods’ first marriage was to Jim L. Townsend, a drug kingpin. There were rumors that Jim Townsend was 23 years older than Majorie, however, this wasn’t what led to their breakup.

Marjorie was never charged with a crime, although Townsend reported that the agents on his case believed that they had substantial evidence of Marjorie’s illegal activities. They said this in a bid to force his cooperation with them.
Marjorie divorced Jim less than five years into his sentence. She had her first two kids with him, however. They are Jason and Morgan.
