2 residents sentenced separately for drugs

MANISTIQUE – Two Manistique residents will serve jail time for drug charges, following their arrest by the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team in July. The two were recently sentenced in Schoolcraft County 11th Circuit Court.

Forstner was originally charged with one count of delivery/manufacture of a controlled substance and one count of delivery of a controlled substance on school property. She also faced a habitual offender charge.

Forstner plead guilty to the first count and was sentenced to six months in jail, with credit for 133 days served. The other count, along with the habitual offender charge, was dropped. She was also ordered to pay $1,118 in fines and costs.

Herro originally faced three counts of delivery/manufacture of a controlled substance, along with a habitual offender – fourth offense charge.

Herro plead guilty to one count against him and was sentenced to 12 months in jail, with credit for 114 days served. He was sentenced to serve 10 months immediately, with the remaining two months held in abeyance pending successful completion of 18 months probation.

Herro’s license was suspended for 180 days, and the habitual offender charge was dropped. He was ordered to pay $1,248 in fines and costs.
