ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - A Groton man accused of having more than 7 pounds of marijuana worth about $40,000 at his farm and business has been sentenced to serve 10 years in prison.

Forty-five-year-old Timothy Thurston was arrested last December and later pleaded guilty to possessing and intending to distribute drugs. The American News reports (https://bit.ly/1J1S1p5 ) he was sentenced Wednesday.

Thurston also was ordered to pay nearly $3,500 in fines, fees, restitution and drug-testing costs. He was given credit for about eight months spent behind bars and will be eligible for parole after serving 40 percent of his sentence.
