Man Sentenced In Marijuana Flight Case

Associated Press - October 6, 2015 5:56 am

A Colorado man who flew a plane loaded with marijuana to Iola, Kansas, was sentenced to a year in federal prison.

Federal prosecutors say 59-year-old Kenneth E. Weaver, of Denver, was sentenced Monday for one count of possession with intent to distribute marijuana. He admitted in his plea that he flew a plane carrying 207 pounds of medical grade marijuana into the Iola airport on July 11, 2014.

In addition to his prison sentence, Weaver’s plane, more than $450,000 in cash, a 2007 Bentley Continental and a 2010 BMW X were forfeited to the federal government.

After his prison term, Weaver will be on one year of supervised release.
