IRON MOUNTAIN — Two individuals pleaded guilty to heroin related charges in Iron Mountain this morning. ABC 10’s Caleb Scanlon was in Dickinson County Circuit Court, and he brings us the details.

32–year–old Yarodin Parker and 20–year–old Desiree Martz were arraigned in Dickinson County Circuit Court Tuesday morning. Parker pleaded guilty to two counts of delivery of a controlled substance, specifically heroin less than 50 grams. That holds a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and or a fine of $25,000.

Parker also pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to deliver heroin, which holds a maximum sentence of 20 years and a fine up to $10,000.

As a result of the plea agreement, those sentences will be served concurrently, and all other charges were dropped. Also in Dickinson County Circuit Court, 20–year–old Desiree Martz of Kingsford pleaded guilty to two counts of delivery or manufacture of a controlled substance, specifically heroin.

Each count holds a maximum sentence of 20 years and or a fine of $25,000. Parker and Martz were arrested in December 2015 after a multiple week undercover investigation led by the K.I.N.D. drug enforcement team.

Both Parker and Martz are scheduled to be sentenced on February 2nd.
