Leavenworth County District Court
A rural Tonganoxie woman has been sentenced to 12 months in jail on a misdemeanor possession of marijuana charge. But Jackie Sommer was granted a 12-month probation term. As a condition of the probation, she will be required to serve 30 days in jail, according to David Melton, deputy county attorney. Sommer's husband, Jarrod, is scheduled for sentencing at 10 a.m. Dec. 17 on a felony charge of cultivation of marijuana. The charges against the couple stem from a marijuana-growing operation at their home in the 18500 block of 246th Street. They were arrested in May, after sheriff's officers discovered the operation in the basement of a building on the couple's property.
