They pleaded not guilty last summer in Bossier Parish. Stroud says Billy Bretherton pleaded guilty on April 19.
A Bossier City spokesman said last year that police answering a 911 hang-up call from a hotel room found the Brethertons with suspected synthetic marijuana and a device often used to smoke drugs. Mark Natale said the device tested positive for synthetic marijuana.

Stroud says Bretherton was given a suspended 60-day jail term and fined $500. His probation requires community service and regular drug and alcohol testing.
