PORTLAND, Maine  — Federal prosecutors say an Oxford, Maine, man has pleaded guilty to cultivating marijuana in the White Mountain National Forest.

Thirty-eight-year-old Todd Clukey pleaded guilty Monday before U.S. District Judge Brock Hornby in Portland.

Court records say that between May 2010 and September 2010, Clukey grew marijuana in the national forest in an unorganized portion of Oxford County. Officials say Clukey also admitted that he had grown marijuana on national forest land the previous two years.

Clukey, who remains free pending sentencing, faces a maximum possible sentence of five years imprisonment, a $500,000 fine, or both.
