At a trial conducted Jan. 22 and 23, the defendant was found guilty of possession of more than five grams of marijuana with intent to deliver and three counts of possession of a controlled substance. He was tried as a persistent drug offender, so the 10-year sentence for possession with intent to deliver will be served without the possibility of parole.
