NORTH PLATTE, NE (AP) -- A woman who was arrested with another Nevada County person for marijuana possession on Interstate 80 near North Platte has been fined $500.

Kelly Robyn, of Grass Valley, Calif., was sentenced Monday for attempted possession of more than a pound of marijuana. After a plea deal, prosecutors lowered the charge from a felony to a misdemeanor. The judge noted that it was Robyn's first offense.

Robyn, 48, was a passenger in a car stopped in April.

The Nebraska State Patrol says 24 pounds of marijuana was found in the vehicle's trunk.

The driver, Gary Benedict, 60, of Nevada City, Calif., missed a May hearing and is being sought on a bench warrant. Court records say Benedict faces two drug felony drug charges. Case records don't list his attorney's name.
