District Court Chief Judge Wilma A. Lewis sentenced Gail Leung, 57, to 18 months in prison Friday for manufacture of marijuana, U.S. Attorney Ronald W. Sharpe announced Tuesday.
Lewis also ordered Leung to serve two years of supervised release and pay a $100 special assessment and $5,000 fine.
According to Sharpe’s news release, Leung pleaded guilty June 11 to manufacture of marijuana. As part of her plea, she agreed to pay a $3,000 forfeiture money judgment. Court documents indicate Leung knowingly and intentionally grew marijuana plants on her property in Estate Mount Pleasant on St. Croix.
On May 28, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration removed 200 marijuana plants from the property.
The case was investigated by the DEA and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rhonda Williams-Henry.
