COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) _ A couple who once owned a diner in
Priest River have pleaded guilty in federal court to laundering up
to nearly $900,000 over three decades for a group involved in
trafficking marijuana.

John ``Phillip'' Keyser and Texanna Keyser face up to 5 years in
federal prison under a plea agreement they accepted Monday,
admitting to transactions and real estate purchases involving drug
proceeds.

Their son, Jerod Keyser, a Priest River mortgage broker, is
expected to enter a plea March 24. According to government lawyers,
the trio laundered a combined $1.1 million or more.

Sentencing for Jerod Keyser is tentatively set for March 24 in
Boise and for his parents July 7 in Coeur d'Alene.^
