Monticello man pleads guilty to growing pot
MADISON - A Monticello man admitted Tuesday in federal court to conspiring to grow more than 100 marijuana plants last summer on County C, just west of Monticello. Kelvin W. Johnson told District Judge Barbara Crabb that he "helped grow it, cultivate it." Asked specifically what he did, Johnson said he "more or less dug holes, knocked down weeds and carried water," to a plot secluded by trees and crops.
