Three men enter plea agreements in court

MARQUETTE — Three men were arraigned on several felony charges in Marquette County Circuit Court Friday morning.

Thirty three year-old Samuel Duff pleaded guilty to one count of second–degree home invasion. Per the terms of his plea agreement, three other charges against him were dropped.

Duff was arrested in late March after a yearlong investigation by Forsyth Township Police Department after a break–in at a camp on Little Shag Lake. He’s scheduled to be sentenced on June 1st.

Also appearing for a circuit court arraignment Friday morning was 31–year–old Nathan Knotek. He pleaded guilty to one count of possession of meth.

Knotek was arrested in late March after leading police on a pursuit down M–553. He will be sentenced on June 1st.

And 30–year–old David Illikainen pleaded guilty to receiving and concealing stolen property of a motor vehicle. He was arrested by the Ishpeming Township Police Department earlier this month after a traffic stop.

Like the previous two defendants, Illikainen will be sentenced on June 1st.
