Marijuana growers sentenced to federal prison
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The three remaining defendants in the case of the so-called Kettle Falls Five were sentenced to federal prison on Friday for growing marijuana in a state where both the medical and recreational use of marijuana are legal under Washington laws.
The defendants are known as the Kettle Falls Five because of their original number. They were convicted earlier this year of growing marijuana on their rural property near Kettle Falls, in violation of federal law.
Rolland Gregg was sentenced Friday to 33 months in prison, followed by three years of probation. His wife Michelle Gregg, 36, was sentenced to one year in prison and three years of probation. Rhonda Firestack-Harvey, 56, who is Rolland Gregg's mother, was also sentenced to one year in prison and three years of probation.
All three remain free pending the outcome of appeals.
"I sincerely apologize for violating federal law," Rolland Gregg told U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Rice prior to sentencing. "I am not the victim here. I am now a felon."
