59-year-old Gary Tarrence was sentenced Thursday. Tarrence also received two years of supervised released and was ordered to forfeit almost $6,000.
He had pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute.
Prosecutors say the marijuana was found in his Lincoln apartment April 15, 2014, during a drug raid. Tarrence’s brother, David Tarrence, has filed a claim against the city of Lincoln and Lancaster County, saying law enforcement wrongly seized cash and property from his home after his brother was arrested in 2014.
