NEWPORT-Adilaih Fernandez, 40, reached a plea agreement in U.S. District Court in connection with a marijuana growing operation.

Fernandez pleaded guilty last week to the manufacture of over 100 marijuana plants before U.S. District Judge Ronnie Greer.

Fernandez, a Cuban-American, allegedly worked with four others in growing marijuana indoors in Cocke and Jefferson counties.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Wayne Taylor reportedly filed a motion that requests presiding Judge Ronnie Greer allow Fernandez to file a supplement to her plea agreement, in an effort to reduce her sentence.

In the plea agreement, Fernandez agrees to give up her stake in property on Brown Hollow Road in Newport, Highway 315 in White Pine, in Thorn Hill, and in Sneedville. The properties are estimated to be worth a total of about $650,000.
