BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A co-owner of a Mandan smoke shop has been sentenced to serve a year in prison for conspiring to sell synthetic marijuana.

Big Willies co-owner William Nickel will not have to serve the sentence until an appeal is heard by the North Dakota Supreme Court.

A jury in August convicted Nickel and Ryan Zueger of conspiracy to deliver a controlled substance. Zueger is to be sentenced Nov. 13.

The two men also were charged with possessing synthetic drugs in 2010 but the charges were dismissed on a technicality.
