Sam Kendrick, Jr. was sentenced to one year in jail with credit for 105 days served and court fines total about $1,200.  In February, he pled guilty to three counts of delivery of heroin in Chippewa County Circuit Court.

His co-defendant, 32-year-old Onalee Chippewa of Brimley, opted to plead not guilty in March to delivery of heroin less, than 50 grams and maintaining a drug house.  She has a three-day trial scheduled for June 4-6.

The pair was arrested by the Straits Area Narcotics Enforcement Team in December.

Officers seized heroin, cash, and other drug paraphernalia from their residence.
