An Engadine man will spend 18 months in federal prison for conspiracy to manufacture marijuana.
44-year-old Timothy Nelson was sentenced this morning in U.S. District Court in Marquette.
Nelson will also have to serve five years of supervised release and will have to pay a $1,000 fine.
He pleaded guilty in January to conspiracy to manufacture 100 or more marijuana plants.
The charge came from a 2007 investigation into the growing of marijuana in various locations in Mackinac County.
The Michigan State Police, the Straits Area Narcotics Enforcement team and the Chippewa County Sheriff’s Department investigated the case.
