HUTCHINSON — A 19-year-old man has been sentenced to probation for growing psychedelic mushrooms at a Hutchinson business.
A Reno County judge on Friday sentenced Carlyeon Moore to three years of probation. He faces 18 years in prison if he violates the probation.
District Judge Trish Rose agreed to depart from state sentencing guidelines in granting the probation after an agreement between attorneys in the case.
The Hutchinson News reports officers in March 2015 found the mushroom growing operation in a back room at the business, which wasn’t identified. Police said there were about six dozen growing mushrooms and other equipment.
