    Four members of a Bartlett family all pleaded guilty to drug possession on Tuesday during an appearance in DuPage County Court.

    The Schoenwolfs, comprised of husband Rick, 50, wife Kimberly, 46, daughter Staci, 20 and son Eric, 19, were each charged with possession of different drugs, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

    Each of them was sentenced to serve two years' probation and 30 hours of community service.

    Their defense attorney, Brian Telander, said the family could seek to have the felony convictions expunged.

    "They made a terrible mistake, but they shouldn't have to suffer for the rest of their lives," Telander told the Sun-Times.

    Police raided the home in July and found marijuana, cocaine, prescription painkillers and psychedelic mushrooms.
