Rodeo Clown Gets Prison for Growing Marijuana

  • Photo
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) A professional rodeo clown has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison for growing marijuana in rural Iowa for several years.

U.S. District Judge Linda Reade announced Thursday the sentence of 55-year-old Roy Meeks, of Marion. He was given a special assessment of $100.

Meeks, who worked as a rodeo clown and bullfighter in local and national rodeos, was convicted in March of one count of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana. He was acquitted on a second charge.

Prosecutors say Meeks conspired with others to plant marijuana along corn and soybean fields in secluded spots in Jones County. He is accused of tending the plants throughout the summer then harvesting and processing them.

Prosecutors say Meeks was involved in growing more than 1,000 marijuana plants between 2004 and 2011.
