Three men charged with ordering marijuana by mail for resale entered no contest pleas in Criminal Court under judicial diversion on Tuesday.
Warren Stanko, Nathan Kolb and Charles S. Roberts appeared before Criminal Court Judge Barry Steelman.
Prosecutor Lance Pope said a similar deal was worked out with a fourth defendant, George Vincent Baese.
They were charged with possession of over 10 pounds of marijuana for resale.
Judge Steelman said the no contest pleas were treated as guilty pleas.
The convictions can be removed from their records if they have no further infractions over the length of the diversion.
They were given two-year prison sentences that can be ordered into effect if they do not pick up any new charges.
They must also pay $2,000 fines and perform 100 hours of community service.
The probe began after a postal inspector became suspicious of three express mail packages. It was found that each package contained over 10 pounds of marijuana. They all came from an address in San Francisco. The address turned out to be fake.
