This morning in the 33rd Circuit Court, two men were sentenced to prison on methamphetamine charges.
Andrew Karl Misner, 34, East Jordan, was sentenced to serve 34 to 240 months on a conviction of delivery of methamphetamine.
Darren Robert Midyett, 33, Charlevoix, was sentenced to 24 to 120 months for possession of methamphetamine.
According to a police affidavit, Misner sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant on December 1, 2020. He was later charged with witness interference for posts he made on social media naming the informant and saying that the informant should have their tongue cut out. Misner pleaded guilty on July 2.
Midyett was arrested on June 30, 2020, when police were called to investigate a domestic disturbance in the City of Charlevoix and encountered Midyett who had outstanding arrest warrants, according to a police affidavit. Midyett pleaded guilty on June 4.
Police searched Midyett’s vehicle and discovered a plastic baggie containing methamphetamine. Midyett had been previously convicted of five felonies and 13 misdemeanors, including prior convictions for delivery of controlled substances.
“While our goal is not to imprison people who are simply drug addicts, those who sell drugs, especially dangerous drugs like methamphetamine, must be held accountable,” Charlevoix County Prosecuting Attorney Allen Telgenhof said.
