A California man has been given four to six years in a Nebraska prison for conspiring to sell marijuana.

Thirty-six -year-old Darrin Ransom, of Union City, California had pleaded no contest. He was sentenced Wednesday.

A U.S. postal inspector contacted Lincoln police in September 2010 after searching two suspicious packages addressed to a woman's apartment. The packages contained a total of more than 14 pounds of marijuana.

The woman, Stephanie Olson, and her boyfriend at the time, Michael Reynolds, later were prosecuted and sentenced as well.

Olson admitted she knew about the marijuana and said it was meant for Reynolds, who'd gotten previous mail deliveries.

Police say the pot was sent by Ransom, who intended to fly to Lincoln and sell the marijuana.
