A Lena man who had more than 9 pounds of marijuana stashed in his garage has been sentenced to three years in prison.
Timothy C. Johnson, 31, will serve the sentence after he completes a 22-month prison term handed down after his extended supervision on a previous drug delivery offense was revoked. Johnson was charged with possession with intent to deliver THC as a repeat offender. He was also charged with burglary, felony theft and attempted burglary related to another case, which led to the information that provided the basis for the warrant. Those charges were read and dismissed.
As part of a plea agreement, Johnson pleaded no contest to the possession with intent to deliver charge, with the two modifiers deleted. The maximum sentence for that charge is 7.5 years in prison and five years extended supervision. The two modifiers increased the possible prison time by another four years each.
