Man sentenced in nationwide marijuana distribution ring

Posted:
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) -- A California man has been ordered to spend five years in federal prison for his role in a nationwide marijuana-distribution ring that included sending the drug to Illinois.

A federal judge in East St. Louis sentenced 32-year-old Trevor Bertlesman of San Anselmo, Calif., on Wednesday.

Bertlesman pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy to distribute marijuana with 13 other defendants convicted in the scheme.

The government says Bertlesman assisted in shipping large quantities of marijuana from Tucson, Ariz., to East St. Louis and elsewhere between 2001 and 2007.
