According to the Daily Local News, Marley had removed pot plants from the basement of her suburban Philadelphia home after a housemate she was trying to evict called the police. The man, who had sublet a room, was trying to remove his washer and dryer from the basement and told cops that she was growing pot in the house. An investigation, in which she was observed in the backyard of the home standing next to a marijuana plant, led to her arrest on charges of manufacturing a controlled substance and tampering with physical evidence.
Chester County Assistant District Attorney Carlos Barraza, who is prosecuting the case, told the paper he had agreed to withdraw a mandatory one-year prison sentence for the amount of marijuana Marley had in her basement in return for Marley's guilty plea. According to the report, her attorney will request probation.
Marley was born on May 31, 1981, three weeks after her father died of cancer. Her mother, Yvette Crichton, was the last of several women that Bob Marley is officially recognized for fathering children with, aside from his widow, Rita.
Although Makeda had become a beneficiary of her dad's estate, she reportedly used up her proceeds. She had recently been working locally as a waitress.
