Two 37-year-old men have pleaded guilty to federal charges in a conspiracy to distribute more than 100 kilos of marijuana in Jackson County and elsewhere.
Both are held for sentencing Aug. 27 in U.S. District Court.
Jason V. Deville faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine. He accepted a plea agreement to a conspiracy charge.
Corey Anthony Charles faces up to five years and a $250,000 fine. He admitted he assisted in efforts to distribute marijuana.
The Sun Herald reports the men were arrested after a grand jury indicted them in March. The indictment said they and others had conspired to distribute marijuana in Moss Point and surrounding areas since at least 2007.
