Pelham - A man who was arrested for growing nearly 180 marijuana plants behind his house has been convicted of the same offense before.

Fifty-year-old Ernest Eugene Weeks of Pelham was convicted in 1988 of manufacturing marijuana.

In the late 80's, prisons were overcrowded. He served a year of his five-year sentence. Weeks was, once again, charged with manufacturing marijuana last week.

His wife, 45-year-old Linda Weeks, was charged with possession of marijuana.

Mr. Weeks was granted a pardon in 2001, restoring his civil and political rights.

In Georgia, a convicted person can apply for a pardon five years after completing prison time and probation.
