The judge offered 29-year-old Makeda Jahnesta Marley a choice: a shorter prison term or a shitload of probation. She opted for the probation and risks being jailed if she violates her terms. (Good luck…that is SEVEN YEARS!!)
Marley was arrested in 2008 after police say they found her removing plants from her basement when officers arrived on a domestic-dispute call. She plead guilty in September.
Marley’s probation calls for her to undergo random drug tests and stay away from drug users.
Her attorney, Thomas Schindler, says that won’t be a problem for her. He called the marijuana growing an “aberration.”
