Probation ordered for marijuana possession
Sellin had more than 70 pounds of pot in his vehicle at the time of his arrest.
WORTHINGTON — A Wisconsin man will serve five years of supervised probation after pleading guilty to second-degree drug possession.
Scott Sellin, 27, of Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, was arrested in October during a Nobles County traffic stop. A search of his vehicle revealed 68 one-pound heat-sealed packages of raw marijuana and three pounds of marijuana wax.
Sellin was charged with two felony criminal offenses: first-degree drug sale and second-degree drug possession. He pleaded guilty to Count Two, second-degree drug possession, and the other charge was dismissed as part of the plea agreement. He received his sentence Tuesday.
Fifth Judicial District Judge Sherry Haley granted Sellin a stay of imposition, meaning that she did not indicate a prison term. Instead, Sellin may serve five years of supervised probation. He was also ordered to pay a $1,000 fine.
"I just want to apologize," Sellin told the court. "I'm sorry for what I did. What I did was wrong and stupid."
