Frey pleads guilty to two counts of selling marijuana

Charles Edward Frey, 55, Little Falls, was convicted Sept 12, of two felony counts of fifth degree sale of marijuana. One count was give a stay of imposition, where the charges may be lowered to a misdemeanor if Frey abides by all the stipulations placed on him during probation. The other count was given a stay of adjudication, where the charges may be dismissed if Frey abides by the stipulations.

In April, a Morrison County deputy learned Frey was selling marijuana from his home in Little Falls and that he was selling to at least one juvenile.

On April 11, officers executed a search warrant for Frey’s residence. He admitted selling marijuana, but only to adults.

A search of Frey’s residence revealed a safe containing seven bags of marijuana, weighing more than 450 grams, or just over one pound.

Frey was sentenced to 30 days in jail with credit for six days time served for each count. He was fined $135 for one count and $330 for the other count and given five years of supervised probation for each count.

Dismissed against Frey were one felony count each of fourth degree sale of drugs and fifth  degree possession of not a small amount of marijuana. Morrison County Assistant Attorney Todd Kosovich said the two felonies were dismissed because he pleaded guilty to two counts of fifth degree felony sales.
