Negaunee man pleads guilty to meth charge

A Negaunee man could spend up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to a meth charge.

Thomas Harig had his arraignment in Marquette County Circuit Court Friday morning.

He pleaded guilty to possession of methamphetamine.  Prosecutors dropped a charge of operating or maintaining a meth lab.

Harig is scheduled for sentencing June 6.
