A Minnesota man was sentenced Tuesday to 30 days in jail and put on probation for three years for illegal possession of a prescription drug.
Nicholas James Siedow, 30, of New Prague, Minn., pleaded guilty in June to possession of a controlled substance. The charge is the result of a traffic stop in Mitchell in which Siedow was caught with between a quarter- and a half-ounce of marijuana and a prescription drug known as methylphenidate, which is used to treat ADHD. In addition to jail time and probation, Siedow was fined $1,000 with $500 suspended.
Judge Rodney Steele granted Siedow a suspended imposition of sentence, which means the conviction won’t appear on his record if he complies with the terms of his probation.
Siedow will be allowed to serve his jail time in Minnesota if he is able to make the arrangements in the next 20 days.
