A Worthington, Minnesota teen has been sentenced to probation and other penalties after pleading guilty to felony drug possession with intent to deliver.

Sioux County Attorney Coleman McAllister says that 18-year-old Keophothone Rounoubon, of Worthington was sentenced for the crime of Possession with Intent to Deliver Marijuana, a Class D Felony.

On October 19, 2011, an Iowa State trooper stopped Rounoubon for speeding near Exit 16 — the Alton exit — on Highway 60. At the time of the traffic stop, the trooper was assisted by a Sioux County Deputy Sheriff, a K-9 dog handler, who, with the aid of his drug detection dog, located about two ounces of marijuana in Rounoubon’s vehicle in five individually packaged baggies. After the drugs were found, Rounoubon admitted to intending to deliver the marijuana to a person in Worthington.

After pleading guilty, Rounoubon received a deferred judgment and he was placed on probation for two years. As specific conditions of probation, Rounoubon must pay a civil penalty of $750, be enrolled as a full-time student or be gainfully employed at least 40 hours per week, and undergo a substance abuse evaluation and follow any recommendations.
