CRANDON - Growing pot in your house will likely get you sent to jail. A man who used to live on a lake near Crandon learned that lesson Tuesday.

Paul Linde was sentenced to 90 days in jail in Forest County Court.

He and his wife Rita were arrested in August 2011. Police found a large marijuana grow and weapons in his home on Lake Lucerne.

Linde will also get three years of probation after his three month sentence. He'll also have to pay nearly $3500 in fines.
