Kingman mayor's son gets 3 weeks on drug charge

Posted: Updated:

KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - The 19-year-old son of Kingman Mayor John Salem was sentenced to three weeks in county jail for his conviction on a drug charge.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports that James Trenton "Trent" Salem had previously pleaded guilty to facilitating the cultivation of marijuana.

Salem was arrested with two other people in August at a Kingman home.

All three men carried valid medical marijuana cards, but the amount of marijuana plants seized in the raid far exceeded the number of plants ounces each cardholder could legally possess.

Salem told Mohave County Superior Court Judge Derek Carlisle that he has turned his life around since his arrest, has been involved in a 12-step program at his church and no longer smokes marijuana.
