Man sentenced to 30 months for marijuana possession



A Brownstown man who recently agreed to plead guilty to a federal charge of possessing marijuana with the intent to distribute received a 30-month prison sentence Friday in federal court in Indianapolis.

Philip Todd Nash received that sentence from Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, who also ordered him to pay a $2,000 fine and spend three years on supervised release.

The 44-year-old could spend up to 25½ months in prison because federal rules require prisoners to spend 85 percent of their sentence in prison before they can be considered for release because of good time behavior and other factors.
