ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey police sergeant charged with selling marijuana has been sentenced to probation.

Former Linden Sgt. William Turbett pleaded guilty to fourth-degree distribution of marijuana last month and was sentenced Friday to 18 months of probation.

He forfeited his position and the right to ever seek public employment in the state.

The seven-year veteran made nearly $106,000 last year.

A disorderly person marijuana possession charge against his girlfriend was dismissed.
