Hokming Chan says he was asleep in the car, but didn't know anything about the marijuana.
A 34-year-old Massachusetts man has been convicted in a Nebraska marijuana case.
A jury found Hokming Chan, of West Roxbury, Mass., guilty on Wednesday.
Chan was asleep in the passenger seat Feb. 4, 2011, when a Nebraska State Patrol trooper pulled over a vehicle being driven by Chan's friend, 36-year-old Wade Tang.
A search of the vehicle uncovered nearly 80 pounds of marijuana, and both men were charged with possession for sale.
Chan denied knowing anything about the pot. Tang, who already has pleaded guilty, testified that he alone was responsible for the drugs.
Chan's sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 14.
