COLUMBUS (AP) — Two California residents have pleaded guilty to drug charges after being stopped on Interstate 90 in south-central Montana with 115 pounds of marijuana in their rental car.
Rick Franklin Voight, 37, and Dawn Delores Voight, 41, both of Hayfork, pleaded guilty on July 24 to criminal possession of dangerous drugs with intent to distribute, the Stillwater County News reported. Each also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge.
Under the plea agreement, both face a five-year commitment to the Department of Corrections, which could be served in prison, in boot camp, on parole or in a number of other corrections facilities. Two of those years would be suspended under the deal. Sentencing is set for Sept. 5.
