The Fourth U-S Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that U-S District Judge James Turk cannot change his mind about a defendant's sentence.
The ruling stems from a case involving Dayna Layman.
She's the wife of Victor Layman--a man convicted of setting-up an elaborate, indoor marijuana farm in Roanoke County.
Dayna Layman helped take care of the plants and pled guilty.
Turk originally sentenced Dayna Layman to nine months in prison for her part in the operation.
But, the judge later changed his mind after the defendant asked him to reconsider, claiming financial hardship.
The prosecutor in the case challenged the new sentence and the appeals court agreed.
