"How Sweet Leaf's Success Story Went Up in Smoke"
"Sweet Leaf Owners Get a Year in Jail for Illegal Pot Sales"
Sweet Leaf owners Anthony Sauro, Christian Johnson and Matthew Aiken all pleaded guilty in Denver District Court on January 25.
Under plea deals with the Denver District Attorney, the three men will each serve one year in prison and face a year of parole and a one-year probationary sentence to run concurrently for charges under the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act, as well as felony marijuana distribution charges. The cannabis consulting and management companies they collectively own, Dynamic Growth LLC and AJS Holdings, will relinquish all assets and each pay fines of up to $125,000 on charges of organized crime and failure to file tax returns.
Sweet Leaf was once one of Colorado's largest marijuana brands, responsible for eleven dispensaries at one point. But that all ended with the raids in December 2017.
