Pot patch nets grower 10 years in prison

-A A +A
By Tim McCarthy

The owner of a Lawrenceburg excavating company accepted a plea bargain and was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in jail for growing 79 marijuana plants and being illegally in possession of controlled substances.

Chris J. Stewart, proprietor of Stewart's Bobcat and Services, initially pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from his Jan. 16 arrest, but withdrew the plea to accept the penalty. Stewart, 37, could have been sentenced to an additional five years and fined up to $10,000 on the marijuana charge if the case had gone to trial and he was found guilty.
