GUTHRIE COUNTY, Iowa — A former mayor who grew marijuana in her Guthrie County home will avoid prison time.
Investigators found 18 marijuana plants on a property owned by former Jamaica Mayor LaDonna Kennedy and her husband, Randy Kennedy, back in January.
The couple was arrested on several charges, including possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.
Last Friday, LaDonna Kennedy took a plea deal and the court gave her a deferred judgement and two years of probation. Randy Kennedy received the same sentence earlier this month.
