HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A judge has sentenced two men who pleaded guilty to federal drug charges for their roles in a large medical marijuana operation allegedly run by a former Montana quarterback.
U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen Friday sentenced Christopher Cronshaw to 125 days in prison and three months home arrest and Gregory Zuckert to three days in prison and three months home arrest.
Prosecutors say the 25-year-old Cronshaw was the head grower at Jason Washington's Missoula greenhouse, where he trimmed the plants and packaged the marijuana.
Washington allegedly paid Zuckert $3,000 a month as a consultant for the production and growth of the plants.
Washington, who played five games at Montana in 2005 before being injured, has pleaded not guilty. He was dismissed from the team in 2007 for unspecified reasons.
