David Holden, a Huntsville Times reporter, pleaded guilty Monday in Limestone County court to possession of marijuana.
Holden was arrested in Athens in May 2004 and charged with second-degree assault, driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. The assault and DUI charges were dropped, said Limestone County District Attorney Kristi Valls.
Holden received a one-year sentence that was suspended in lieu of two years of unsupervised probation and a $1,000 fine, Valls said.
