LUDINGTON — The case against a 41-year-old Ludington man facing two felony counts of controlled substance, delivery of marijuana, is headed to trial.

Gene Robert Foster, of 106 E. Pere Marquette Hwy., appeared with his attorney, David Glancy, for a final conference hearing Tuesday, Sept. 22, in 51st Circuit Court.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola offered a plea deal in which Foster would plead to one count of delivery of marijuana and one count of possession of marijuana with one count of marijuana delivery dismissed. As part of the plea agreement, Foster would serve seven months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term.

Glancy said his client was rejecting the offer and asked for a jury trial.

Foster was arrested, March 10, by the State, Sheriffs’, Chiefs’ Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT).
