SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A judge has denied a New Jersey inmate's claim to 300-thousand dollars from the sale of a Park City tract of land.

Steven Kadonsky is serving 25 years to life for leading a nationwide marijuana ring. He had testified a decade ago that drug money was used to buy the land, but later changed course and claimed he bought it with profit from legitimate business ventures.

The inmate had fought a long battle for the money from the land deal, which covered a plot at Highway 224 and Saddleview bought in 1991.

Police say Kadonsky, an accountant, was a front man for the real buyer, who was a drug trafficker.
