Indians pitcher Chris Perez's wife Melanie found guilty, fined for possession of pot

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio - The wife of Indians relief pitcher Chris Perez, Melanie Perez changed her plea from not guilty to no contest Tuesday in Rocky River Municipal Court to one count of possession of a controlled substance. She was then found guilty and ordered to pay a $150 fine.

The Perezes were both charged with possession after Melanie accepted two packages of marijuana that were mailed to their Rocky River home under their dog's name back in June.

Chris Perez was sentenced earlier this month to a year of probation and fined $250 after he also changed his plea from not guilty to no contest. He was also ordered to talk to school kids about the dangers of drugs as part of his sentence.
