NH man sentenced, posted pot vids with face, name

AUBURN, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire man who inadvertently revealed his identity in anonymous online videos about his marijuana-growing operation has been sentenced to jail.

Police say Kyle Berry’s how-to-grow-marijuana videos on YouTube were posted anonymously last fall, but his face was reflected off a shiny surface and a package showed his name.

Berry, of Auburn, pleaded guilty to manufacturing a controlled drug.

WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/17jV8rD) Berry said he was growing the marijuana for his own use. Judge Marguerite Wageling says she had a hard time believing that, but agreed with Berry’s lawyer that he was not a drug kingpin.

Berry was sentenced Tuesday to a year in jail, with four months suspended.
