ROSEMOUNT, Minn., April 7 (UPI) -- A Minnesota man who posted videos of himself teaching his 15-year-old nephew how to roll and smoke marijuana to YouTube was sentenced to 20 days in jail.

Khari Jerome Anse Tillman Sr., 32, of Rosemount, who initially faced four gross misdemeanor charges, received the jail sentence and two years of probation as part of a deal when he pleaded guilty to a gross misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of a child, the St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer Press reported Thursday.

Police said Tillman was arrested after child-protection services brought a series of YouTube videos to the attention of authorities in January 2010. The videos depict Tillman teaching the teenager how to roll a blunt, a hollowed-out cigar filled with marijuana, and smoke the marijuana. Tillman had been the boy's legal guardian at the time the videos were made.
