A sister of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects has appeared in a New Jersey courtroom on marijuana possession and distribution charges.

Bella Tsarnaeva's criminal record likely will be cleared.

The Record newspaper reports that Bergen County prosecutors have said they'll admit her into a pretrial intervention program. But the case was adjourned Monday while lawyers continue to work out a plea deal for her boyfriend.

Police responding to a domestic violence call in December searched the couple's Fairview home after officers said they smelled marijuana.

Tsarnaeva's brother Dzhokhar is charged with carrying out the April 15 attacks in Boston with his older brother, who died in a police shootout.

The sister has never been implicated in the Boston attacks.
