Accused drug dealer faces felony child abuse charges.
LUDINGTON — A 46-year-old Muskegon man arrested recently on drug dealing charges now also faces felony child abuse charges.
David Ramone Wilson, of 519 McLaughlin Ave., has been arraigned in 79th District Court on felony charges of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, felonious assault, second-degree child abuse, and two counts of committing second-degree child abuse in the presence of minor children. Wilson is also charged with a misdemeanor of domestic violence along with a fourth-offense habitual notice.
Wilson is believed to be one of the top suppliers of methamphetamine and heroin to the Ludington area, according to a press release from SSCENT (State, Sheriffs’, Chiefs’ Enforcement of Narcotics Team).
He was arraigned on drug charges after being apprehended by the Ludington Police Department on Foster Street near Lavinia Street, Aug. 17. He is charged with a felony of second-offense cocaine possession and a misdemeanor of marijuana possession. In a separate file, Wilson is charged with assaulting/resisting/obstructing police and a misdemeanor of malicious destruction of property less than $200.
On Aug. 30, Wilson was arraigned on felony charges of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine, possession with intent to deliver heroin and possession with intent to deliver cocaine. All the charges are punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Because of Wilson’s criminal history, a fourth-offense habitual offender notice was filed with the court subjecting Wilson to an enhanced prison sentence if convicted.
Wilson has been the subject of an ongoing investigation initiated by SSCENT in 2016. The Mason County Sheriff’s Office K-9 unit assisted in the arrest.
Wilson is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary exam Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 11:15 a.m. His bail has been set at $500,000/cash.
