|Bob Marley’s daughter Makeda pleaded guilty to growing marijuana in her home. Sentencing is October 10|
The youngest child of reggae icon Bob Marley has admitted she grew marijuana in her Philadelphia-area home.
Makeda Jahnesta Marley, 29, pleased guilty Tuesday to having “nearly a dozen” large marijuana plants inside her home in Cain, Pa., about 30 minutes west of Philadelphia, reports the West Chester Daily Local News.
Marley was arrested in 2008 after police claimed they found her removing plants from her basement when officers arrived on a domestic dispute call.
Marley told the court at a February hearing that she had spent all the money from a trust fund she got from her father’s estate when she turned 18.
Makeda was born just three weeks after her legendary father died in 1981. She was the youngest of Bob’s 13 acknowledged children.
Last year, Marley marketed a “Liv Luv” line of clothing, with hoodies and t-shirts marked with the Liv Luv logo.
Sentencing is scheduled for October 10. Thomas Schindler, Marley’s attorney, said he will seek probation.
