Multiple defendants enter guilty pleas in court

MARQUETTE — Twenty–six year old Eric Peterson of Champion and Marquette Township entered a guilty plea on two counts of breaking and entering a building with intent to commit a larceny.

Each felony count is punishable by up to ten years in prison. Peterson was arrested in January by the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office.

Police say Peterson was responsible for several breaking and entering crimes in the Trowbridge Area of Marquette Township.

“I was going in to find whatever I could to feed my addiction,” said Peterson.

Peterson will be sentenced on April 22nd.

Thirty–two year old Alison Dehlin of Ishpeming also entered a plea agreement. Dehlin pleaded guilty to one felony count of embezzlement by an agent or trustee, greater than $1,000 but less than $20,000.

Two other charges against Dehlin were dismissed as part of the plea agreement. Dehlin will be back in court for sentencing on April 29th.
