A Mitchell man pleaded guilty Tuesday to distributing marijuana.

Casey Nespor, 18, entered his plea during court at the Davison County Public Safety Center.

In exchange for his guilty pleas to distribution of more than 1 ounce of marijuana but less than 1 pound, and distribution of 1 ounce or less of marijuana, the state agreed to dismiss other charges. The state also agreed to recommend five years in prison with two suspended for the first charge and two years in prison for the second, with those sentences running concurrently, or at the same time.

Nespor said he sold to a police confidential informant first on Feb. 22 and then on March 19.

Judge Tim Bjorkman ordered a presentence investigation and scheduled sentencing for September.
