Man found guilty in connection with methamphetamine charges

The ruling handed down last week reversed an opinion from U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill, who said federal courts didn't have jurisdiction to enforce a ruling from the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Court against non-tribal members, Boise State Public Radio reported. The appellate court disagreed.

JACKSON COUNTY, MI (WILX) -- A man has been found guilty in connection with methamphetamine charges, according to a press release from the Jackson County Prosecuting Attorney's office.

Marlin Eugene Davis, born on 10/19/1963, was found guilty of two counts of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, according to Jackson County Prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka.

The office said because the defendant has a prior drug conviction, the maximum penalty is 40 years in the Department of Corrections.

On May 29, 2018, the Jackson Narcotic Enforcement Team conducted a search warrant at the defendant's residence and found 88 grams of methamphetamine, according to the office.

The office said on Oct. 10, 2018, a traffic stop was conducted and 1,002 grams of methamphetamine was located in the defendant's vehicle.

“We are pleased with this result and thank the jury for their service,” said Prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka. “Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Jeremiah Smith and Jackson Narcotic Enforcement Team Detectives Easter and Escott did an outstanding job."

The office said a sentencing date is scheduled for Dec. 11, 2019 at 9 a.m. in Judge John G. McBain's court.
