Duluth Woman Convicted of Marijuana Growing Operation
A Duluth woman has been convicted for having a marijuana-growing operation in her basement. Sixty-six-year-old Carolyn Joanna Brooks entered an Alford plea on Tuesday to a charge of aiding and abetting the sale of marijuana near a school. An Alford plea means that she doesn’t admit to being involved in the crime but concedes that there is enough evidence to convict her.
Brooks acknowledged having 57 marijuana plants growing in her basement. Brooks’ son also is facing the same charge.
Brooks’ daughter turned in her mother and called the police after spotting the growing operation.
