ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Four people have been sentenced in a marijuana growing operation that spanned several Georgia counties and three states.

Dean Slaymaker was sentenced to five years in prison for helping set up an indoor grow operation in Sasser and move another grow operation to Florida. Michael Suber was also sentenced to five years for an indoor marijuana grow operation at his Terrell County home and a home in Panama City, Florida.

Terry Jones admitted he set up an indoor operation in Roswell and was given 12 months in prison. Henry Rutledge got three yeas probation for his part in an indoor grow operation at 180 Fowler Drive in Lee County.

A trial date for accused ringleader Frank Spring was scheduled for next week. It was postponed until after the first of the year to give the defense more time to prepare their case.
