Menominee man sentenced to prison on meth charge
A Menominee man was sentenced to prison for his role in a local drug trafficking network.
According to Menominee County Prosecutor Jeffrey Rogg, 46-year-old Michael David Peak was sentenced to seven to 20 years in prison on February 7.
The investigation began when UPSET Detective Jacob Lauren used a confidential informant to make two controlled purchases from Peak in August at Veteran’s Park and Peak’s residence.
During a search of Peak’s residence after obtaining a search warrant, nine individually packaged bags of methamphetamine were located in Peak’s bedroom.
In October 2019, Peak pleaded guilty to Delivery of Methamphetamine.
According to a press release, Judge Ninomiya ordered that Peak must serve a minimum of seven years in prison before he is eligible for parole.
The press release states, “In doing so, the court granted Rogg’s request to impose an extended term of incarceration upon Peak as a result of his prior violent and assaultive record, as well as his previous convictions for drug dealing.”
