This morning in the 33rd Circuit Court, Matthew Allen Bays, 38, Muskegon, was sentenced to serve 66 to 240 months in prison for selling methamphetamine to a confidential informant.
Bays had pleaded guilty on December 7, 2021 to delivery of methamphetamine. The offense occurred on June 9, 2021 in the City of Charlevoix.
“The work of the Joint Operational Law Enforcement Team (JOLT) in our county again has led to another drug dealer going to prison,” Charlevoix County Prosecuting Attorney Allen Telgenhof said. “Methamphetamine is a dangerous drug that ruins lives and we will continue to vigorously prosecute not only those who sell the drug, but also those who bring this drug into our county.”
Bays had been released from prison only three months prior to selling the drugs in this case. He was previously convicted of four felonies and 16 misdemeanors. This sentence is the third time that Bays has been sentenced to prison.
