Channing man sentenced on marijuana charge

A Dickinson County man was sentenced Tuesday on a marijuana charge but will not spend any time in a Michigan jail.

Mark Baker, 53, of Channing was sentenced to one year in jail but was credited with 379 days served. He was transported to Wisconsin on a release and hold due to a parole hold he’s facing in that state.

Baker pleaded no contest in January to delivery and manufacture of marijuana as a habitual offender, second offense.

The charge stems from May 2013, when Michigan State Police from the Iron Mountain Post arrested him at his residence in Channing. Troopers found marijuana plants and processed material with a street value of more than $121,000.
