The sentence follows an incident last June in which Schwartz was pulled over for a vehicle headlight malfunction near Inspiration Peak, and drugs were found in the vehicle.

He will serve 60 days in the county jail, with credit for time already served amounting to 41 days. He will pay a $500 fine.

Stayed for five years, depending on good behavior, is a sentence of 13 months in the Minnesota Correctional Facility in St. Cloud.
