(WZZM) — A Cedar Springs man involved in the thefts of medical marijuana plants and money from a licensed caregiver earlier this year was sentenced to three years in prison for unarmed robbery. Keenan James Gosselin, 18, was one of three men who took a strong box containing $650 from a medical marijuana caregiver March 1 after the women visited a client at Cedar Springs Mobile Estates. Two weeks later, the woman reported that someone stole medical marijuana plants she had growing in Greenville. "This involved three young men essentially jumping” the victim, Kent County Circuit Court Judge George Jay Quist said during sentencing. Gosselin apologized for the victim "getting hurt” during the robbery. He was sentenced to between 3 and 15 years for unarmed robbery and 1 ½ to 10 years for using a computer to commit a crime. Gosselin was placed on probation in Nov. 2014 for breaking into a home on Lime Lake Drive NE in Solon Township and taking 12 marijuana plants that were being legally grown under Michigan’s Medical Marijuana Act. His probation was terminated after he was arrested in the most recent case.
