Cody McCoy, 20

A Sault Ste. Marie man could be facing up to fifty years in jail on multiple drug charges.

In a plea agreement in Chippewa County Circuit Court, Cody McCoy, 20, pled guilty three felonies: two counts of operating/maintaining a meth lab and possession of meth.

Operating/maintaining a meth lab is punishable by up to twenty years in jail and/or a $100,000 fine.  Possession of meth could land McCoy in jail for up to ten years and/or a $15,000 fine.

McCoy also faces additional charges from his time in jail during the case: one count of furnishing contraband and narcotics in jail and one count of controlled substance, non–narcotics in jail.

The Straits Area Narcotics Enforcement Team arrested McCoy and 21–year–old Shelby Gauthier, in March.  Gauthier is serving between three and twenty years in prison for her involvement.

McCoy will be sentenced February 12.
