LUDINGTON — A 41-year-old Manistee woman is looking at serving two to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to use of heroin and possession of cocaine under 25 grams in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, June 9.

Melissa Sue Streeter was arrested March 25 by the State Sheriffs’ Chiefs’ Enforcement Narcotics Team (SSCENT) for two felony counts of controlled substance, possession on school property – narcotic or cocaine less than 25 grams and was lodged in the Mason County Jail on a $75,000 cash/surety bond.

Her initial charges were dismissed in exchange for pleading to the lesser charges.

Her prison term would run concurrent to a probation violation conviction.

Because she is a habitual offender, her maximum sentence increased to eight years.

Sentencing is set for July 14 at 2:15 p.m.
