(SALINA,Kan) — A Salina man will go to prison for illegally selling potpourri. A judge sentenced Eric Srack Thursday to 30 months plus probation.
Srack used to own The Grind in Salina. Authorities raided the store earlier this year because of the potpourri drug. The chemicals used in the potpourri were added to the controlled substance list in Kanas July first. Investigators testified during trial that Srack's potpourri did contain the illegal substance.
Before sentencing, his defense attorney asked for a re-trial because a juror was sick during part of the deliberations. The judge refused to do that but he reduced the three drug charges against Srack to only one felony charge.
The judge gave Srack time to address the court. Srack said he was not trying to do anything illegal and that he's sorry. He also pointed out Jim Norton of the Salina Drug Task Force.
