A man accused of taking part in a marijuana growing operation in Lincoln with two of his brothers has been given two years in federal prison.
A news release from the office of U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg says 43-year-old My Cao was sentenced on Wednesday. Cao had pleaded guilty to conspiring to grow pot plants.
Cao was ordered to serve three years of supervised release when
he gets out of prison. He also faces deportation to Vietnam.
Court records say Cao's brothers were involved in a drug operation at two Lincoln houses.
Cao has said he tended plants at one house for two years, until May 2010.
