MARSHFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - A Marshfield woman is getting jail and probation time for transporting marijuana from Colorado -- plus chocolate bars laced with the main ingredient in pot.  

23-year-old Alyssa Clapper has pleaded guilty to three Wood County charges of maintaining a drug trafficking place, plus one count of delivering marijuana. Three other counts were dropped in a plea deal.  

She was given 120 days in jail with work release privileges, plus three years of probation.

Another defendant, 26-year-old Aaron Kuentjes of Auburndale, has a similar plea hearing set for May 27th. He's currently charged with nine drug-related and bail jumping counts.  

Kuentjes and Clapper were both arrested last November in separate traffic stops west of Marshfield.

At the time, police lieutenant Rick Gramza -- who was named this week as Marshfield's next police chief -- said the legalization of marijuana in Colorado could result in people selling pot from there in states like Wisconsin.
