MARINETTE, WI (WTAQ) - Three men are headed to a federal prison for growing more than 2,000 marijuana plants in Wisconsin’s Northwoods.

Maria Hilda Magana-Mendoza, Javier Magana and Marco Magana were sentenced Monday to prison terms ranging from 3 to 5 years.

Two other defendants in the case were sentenced earlier this month.

Federal prosecutors charged the group of five last summer, saying they were growing more than a thousand plants on two properties in the towns of Athelstane and Middle Inlet in Marinette County.
