4:54 AFTERNOON UPDATE: Man sentenced for marijuana, mushroom production


A Bowling Green man was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison, followed by two years of supervised release, by Chief Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr. on Dec. 19 for conspiracy to manufacture marijuana inside Mammoth Cave National Park and inside a residence in Warren County, announced David J. Hale, U.S. attorney for the Western District of Kentucky.

Ryan Pitcock, 22, pleaded guilty to a four-count federal indictment Aug. 21. In court, Pitcock admitted that between May 4, 2011, and about Oct. 8, 2011, he and co-defendant Robert Williams of Bowling Green conspired to manufacture less than 50 kilograms of marijuana, a Schedule I controlled substance, inside Mammoth Cave National Park. Pitcock also admitted to manufacturing marijuana and mushrooms containing psilocin and psilocybin within their residence in Warren County. Williams has not been arrested by federal authorities and remains a fugitive from justice.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Joshua Judd prosecuted the case; it was investigated by National Park Service rangers and the Kentucky State Police.
