CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A 44-year-old Missouri music promoter has pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge and agreed to forfeit his Ozarks campground.

James Tebeau pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Cape Girardeau to one felony count of maintaining drug-involved property. He owned the 350-acre Camp Zoe in south-central Missouri's Shannon County. The camp regularly hosted weekend music festivals since 2004 under the name "Schwagstock."

Tebeau performed in a Grateful Dead tribute band called the Schwag, a slang term for low-grade marijuana. As part of his plea deal, he acknowledged being aware of widespread drug sales on his property but not participating.

He also agreed to a 30-month prison sentence but can still appeal an earlier court rejection of his motion to dismiss his indictment. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for September.
