The Lincoln Journal Star says Bans Truong was
sentenced on Tuesday. His lawyer described Truong as the gardener for three of the houses that were uncovered in Lincoln.
A drug task force found more than 2,200 plants and 1,700 grams of harvested marijuana in searches in March 2010.
Truong, who is from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, was arrested in March 2010. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy.
His attorney is Joel Lonowski. Lonowski says Truong was just the gardener for the operation, who watered and re-potted the plants.
