Man's 'anonymous' how-to-grow-pot videos showed face, address
AUBURN, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man who inadvertently revealed his identity in anonymous online videos about his marijuana-growing operation has been sentenced to jail.
Police say Kyle Berry's how-to-grow-marijuana videos on YouTube were posted anonymously last fall, but his face was reflected off a shiny surface and a package showed his name.
Berry, of Auburn, pleaded guilty to manufacturing a controlled drug.
WMUR-TV reports Berry said he was growing the marijuana for his own use. Judge Marguerite Wageling says she had a hard time believing that, but agreed with Berry's lawyer that he was not a drug kingpin.
Berry was sentenced Tuesday to a year in jail, with four months suspended.
