WEST VALLEY -- A West Valley City man who admitted to growing marijuana so his teenage son would think he was cool will spend a month in jail.

Joseph Feichko was arrested back in May after an anonymous caller told police Feichko was growing marijuana in his home. When officers showed up, they found eight mature plants nearly ready for harvest.

On Friday, a judge sentenced Feichko to 30 days in jail, two years of probation and 40 hours of community service.
