ANTIGO, WI (WTAQ) - Former Antigo football coach and elementary principal John Lund will spend three months in jail and a year-and-a-half on probation, for selling marijuana to teachers.

At his sentencing hearing Thursday, Langlade County District Attorney Ralph Uttke said the 48-year-old Lund admitted smoking pot since he was 16. The DA said educators and school coaches are role models – and they need to lead by example.

Lund apologized. His attorney, Henry Schultz, said the public would not be protected by giving his client more punishment.

Lund resigned as principal soon after he was charged in January of 2012. He was about to go on trial a year later, when he struck a plea deal that convicted him of a single count of manufacturing marijuana with the intent to sell. Six other charges were dropped.

As part of his sentence, he must perform 200 hours of community service.

Authorities said Lund ran a business which sold pot to teachers in Antigo and Merrill. Officials said it was part of a larger drug ring which also sold cocaine. 15 people were charged – mostly teachers who got deferred prosecution agreements for using marijuana.
