CBS Radio News Reporter in Washington Pleads to Pot Posession

By Allan Lengel

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Attorney’s Office says a CBS Radio News correspondent in Washington pleaded guilty to misdemeanor possession of marijuana last week, the Washington Post reported.

The Post reported that Howard Arenstein, 60, was sentenced to probation, drug testing and a small fine. Arenstein and his wife Orly Katz, an Israeli newspaper correspondent, were arrested Oct. 1 following an anonymous tip that they were growing marijuana plants in their backyard in their Georgetown area home, the Post reported. Distribution charges were dropped in the case.

The Post reported that the case against Katz has not been resolved yet.
