ESCANABA — A man originally charged with two felony drug counts has been sentenced to probation.

Twenty-two year old Marvin Mercier of Escanaba was sentenced to 18 months probation Wednesday in Delta County Circuit Court. He was given credit for time served.

Mercier pleaded guilty to possession of a schedule 1, 2, or 3 controlled substance in January.
