WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — 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.
