JACKSON — A man convicted of a marijuana charge related to a raid on a Jackson car lot has been sentenced to more than three years.
Jeremy Lee Stambaugh, owner of Paradise Auto Sales in south Jackson, was arrested at the car lot in February along with Johnny Earl Course and David E. Jones.
Stambaugh was sentenced today to three years and three months.
Stambaugh and Course pleaded guilty, but Jones went to trial. He was convicted June 6.
Course and Jones await sentencing.
His attorney wants that thrown out, arguing in U.S. District Court that the evidence didn’t support the conviction.
Federal court records say a raid on the business uncovered 416 pounds of marijuana.
