Summary

The sentencing follows an incident in the fall of 2019 in which Sheahan learned about a cannabis grow-op on his property, prompting him to evict the tenants. Irish police discovered what they described as a sophisticated grow — complete with lights and a watering system — inside a shipping container out back of Sheahan’s house.

Under financial pressure, he did so, making €5,000 ($7,500) in profit on the first crop.
