Canfield man sentenced for drug offense


A man from whom police seized 335 marijuana plants growing in his Canfield residence in January 2012 has been sentenced by a federal judge to five months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release, and fined $1,000.

Charles B. Muth, 41, of Briarwood Court, will spend the first five months of his supervised release under home confinement.

Muth, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy to grow and distribute marijuana, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge Patricia A. Gaughan.

In a separate case, Muth is scheduled to enter a plea on an ethnic intimidation charge before Judge John M. Durkin of Mahoning County Common Pleas Court at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
