PIERRE, S.D. – Attorney General Marty Jackley announced that Jonathan Hunt, 44, Colorado, has been sentenced today for his role in the Flandreau marijuana grow case. He received a suspended imposition of sentence on one count of conspiracy to possess more than one-half pound but less than one pound of marijuana. Hunt was ordered to pay a $500 fine and court costs.
“Jonathan Hunt has been sentenced for his role in the Flandreau marijuana grow case. A marijuana resort is a violation of both state and federal law that would create public health and safety issues across South Dakota,” said Jackley.
This case was investigated by the Division of Criminal Investigation and prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office.
