LUDINGTON — A 42-year-old Manistee woman was sentenced to two to eight years in prison for convictions of use of heroin and possession of cocaine under 25 grams in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, July 14.

Melissa Sue Streeter was arrested March 25 by the State Sheriffs’ Chiefs’ Enforcement Narcotics Team (SSCENT) and has been lodged in the Mason County Jail on a $75,000 cash/surety bond.

Her prison term runs concurrent to a probation violation conviction. Because Streeter is a habitual offender, her maximum sentence increased to eight years.

Streeter has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

Streeter’s attorney, Douglas Stevenson, requested a sentence of one year in jail with drug treatment. “She has the capability of becoming a productive member of society,” Stevenson said.

Streeter received credit for 110 days served in jail.
