MEDINA — Charges against a 49-year-old Liverpool Township woman accused of growing marijuana were reduced Monday in a plea deal that called for her to testify against her husband.

Her sentencing was scheduled for Dec. 2 before Medina County Common Pleas Judge Christopher J. Collier. She faces a maximum punishment of up to 1½ years.
Stuab’s husband, 63-year-old John Staub, is scheduled for a Jan. 13 trial.

His charge remains a third-degree felony, punishable by up to three years in prison.
