34-years-old, Kevin Clark entered the guilty plea during his first appearance in Court.
The Court was told that on the June 14, at King Edward Street, Albouystown, the man was found with the marijuana in his possession for the purpose of trafficking.

The young woman told investigators that she had nothing to do with the illegal item and that it belonged to her stepdad.
The man told the court that he would usually sell marijuana to support his three daughters.
He offered an apology to the Court as he made the case for being a good father, while admitting that that the only thing he could have done to get money for them, was to sell marijuana.
The man was sentenced to four years in jail and fined $30,000 after his guilty pea.
