WEST CHESTER, PA. (AP) - The youngest child of reggae legend Bob Marley has admitted growing marijuana in her Philadelphia-area home.
The Daily Local News of West Chester reports 29-year-old Makeda Jahnesta Marley pleaded guilty Tuesday to having nearly a dozen large marijuana plants inside her home in Caln, about 30 miles west of Philadelphia.
Marley was arrested in 2008 after police say they found her removing plants from her basement when officers arrived on a domestic dispute call.
At a February hearing, Marley told the court she had exhausted a trust fund she received from her father’s estate when she turned 18.
Sentencing is scheduled for October. Marley’s attorney, Thomas Schindler, told The Associated Press he will seek probation.
