RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) -- Men from Minnesota and Wisconsin caught with two duffel bags of marijuana during a traffic stop in South Dakota have pleaded guilty to drug charges.
The state Attorney General's Office has negotiated plea agreements with 64-year-old Dennis Krivinchuk of Superior, Wisconsin, and 66-year-old Richard Ward, of Duluth, Minnesota.
The deals call for minimal jail time, though a judge must agree. Krivinchuk could face up to five years in prison and Ward up to 15 years. They're to be sentenced on June 3.
Authorities say the men had 60 pounds of marijuana and 150 grams of hashish when a Highway Patrol trooper stopped them on Interstate 90 near Rapid City last November.
