(WGTD)---The defendants in a family-run, black-market THC vape manufacturing and sales business escaped any additional jail time at their sentencing in Kenosha court Friday morning, according to online court records. 

The alleged ringleader, 23-year-old Tyler Huffhines, was placed on probation for three years and given credit for 661 days of time served.  

His 26-year-old brother, Jacob, will be under supervision for two years. Jacob is facing unrelated drug charges in Racine County. 

Their mother, 46-year-old Courtney Huffhines, was fined $15,000.

All three had pleaded guilty to reduced charges in a case that had dragged on for three years as a result of legal wrangling. 

According to the criminal complaint, the three were operating the business out of a rented Bristol condo, the family's home in Paddock Lake and Courtney Huffhines' real estate office in Union Grove.

At one point, the business employed as many as 10 workers and was purportedly producing over 4,000 THC vape cartridges a day from THC oil bought in California. 

If the Huffhines brothers violate conditions of their probation they could be re-sentenced or have their probation revoked.
