NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man who prosecutors say was part of a marijuana trafficking operation that flew about two tons of pot into the state on a small aircraft has been sentenced to about 2 ½ years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 34-year-old Terrell Givens, of Beacon Falls, was sentenced Wednesday for his role in the operation in which a pilot flew marijuana from California to Connecticut for roughly two years for Givens and others to sell.

Investigators said the group made millions of dollars in profits.

Givens pleaded guilty in May to drug and money laundering charges. He was one of four men charged in the scheme.

The Connecticut Post reports that Givens’ lawyers say he became addicted to marijuana at a young age and has turned his life around.
