The founder of a local marijuana collective that had dispensaries in Colton and Upland was found guilty by a federal jury of conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute marijuana plants, federal officials said Friday.
The jury found Sandusky conspired to manufacture and/or possess with intent to distribute at least 1,000 marijuana plants, according to officials.
Sandusky faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's office. A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 7.
The jury, however, could not reach unanimous verdicts on four remaining counts in the indictment, which charges Sandusky with maintaining a drug-involved premises at each of the G3's stores. The court declared a mistrial on these counts, U.S. Attorney officials said.
