KINGMAN, Ariz. -- A 19-year-old son of Kingman's mayor faces up to a year in jail and a probation term when he is sentenced April 2 for his part in a marijuana growing operation.

James Trenton Salem pleaded guilty to a charge of facilitation of production of marijuana. Salem is the son of Mayor John Salem.

The Kingman Daily Miner reported that authorities dropped several felony charges as a part of a deal that resulted in Salem's Feb. 26 plea.

Salem was among three men arrested last August when authorities seized dozens of plants being grown in a home.

According to prosecutor Tom Godfrey, Salem's crime will be treated as a misdemeanor if he successfully completes probation but as a felony if it does not.
