They were arrested in February along with Jeremy Lee Stambaugh, owner of Paradise Auto Sales. Stambaugh was sentenced in August to three years and three months.
Stambaugh and Course pleaded guilty, but Jones went to trial. He was convicted June 6.
Federal court records say a raid on the business uncovered 416 pounds of marijuana.
