Calif. man sentenced on drug charge in fed court in Sioux Falls

Posted: Updated:

PIERRE -- A California man has been sentenced in federal court in South Dakota for his role in a conspiracy to distribute marijuana.
    
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 29-year-old Brett McFarland, of Korbel, Calif., was sentenced to five years in prison to be followed by four years of supervised release.
    
McFarland pleaded guilty last November to a drug distribution conspiracy charge. A money laundering conspiracy charge was dropped.
    
Johnson says McFarland has agreed to forfeit to the government his interest in proceeds from the sale of property in Petrolia, Calif., that was bought with drug proceeds.
