Campus dealer takes plea deal

HOUGHTON — A Grand Rapids man pleaded guilty to delivery of marijuana in a plea agreement in Houghton County Circuit Court Thursday.

Jon Ettinger, 19, had two identical charges dismissed of the four-year felony, as well as a misdemeanor charge of trespassing on Michigan Technological University’s campus.

In February, Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET) detectives received information after a month-long investigation Ettinger was selling marijuana, LSD and prescription medication, UPSET said at the time.

It executed search warrants at two addresses and found what it termed packaged marijuana and acid-laced prescription drugs.

Sentencing is scheduled to take place on July 21.
