Gaylord Marijuana Grower Sentenced 23 Dec 11

A Gaylord woman who admitted to growing marijuana in her home has been sentenced to 3 days in jail and 5 years of probation. 41-year-old Sally Ellen Robinette pleaded guilty to 5th-degree possession of a controlled substance in late November after authorities discovered 14 marijuana plants growing in her home at Westgate Apartments in Gaylord. Her apartment was searched after police detected the smell of marijuana in a hallway. The plants were found in Robinette’s bedroom closet, along with growing equipment and other paraphernalia. In addition to the jail time and probation, she was also ordered to perform 10 days of Sentence To Service and cooperate with Sibley County Mental Health and attend all psychiatric appointments.
