Bob Marley's daughter pleads guilty to drug charge

WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - September 8, 2010

The Daily Local News of West Chester reports 29-year-old Makeda Jahnesta Marley pleaded guilty Tuesday to having nearly a dozen large marijuana plants inside her home in Caln, about 30 miles west of Philadelphia.

Marley was arrested in 2008 after police say they found her removing plants from the basement when officers arrived on a domestic dispute call.

At a February hearing, Marley told the court she had exhausted a trust fund she received from her father's estate when she turned 18.

Sentencing is scheduled for October. Prosecutors withdrew a mandatory one-year prison sentence as part of a plea agreement.

A message left early Wednesday for Marley's attorney was not immediately returned.
