BUTLER, Pa. (AP) - A 65-year-old Pennsylvania woman has admitted selling hundreds of pounds of marijuana from her home but says she needed the money to raise several grandchildren after her daughter died.

Candace Kelly, of Sarver, was originally charged last fall after authorities found 64 pounds of hydroponically grown marijuana and nearly $400,000 in cash at her home in Buffalo Township.

Those charges were withdrawn because of problems with a search warrant. Kelly was charged again in January after a grand jury investigation.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1sPt2AC ) reports Kelly pleaded guilty Wednesday in Butler County and faces up to 10 years in prison.

She told a judge she sold as much as 100 pounds of marijuana a year for more than four years.

Kelly is also forfeiting $393,000 seized by the state police.
