Flint man sentenced to prison on weapons charge

A Flint man will spend a maximum of 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to a weapons charge.

Markeese Henderson, 30, was sentenced Monday in Houghton County Circuit Court to a minimum of 16 months in jail.  He was credited with 133 days served.

Henderson pled guilty to receiving or concealing stolen firearms in July.

He was arrested by authorities in downstate Genesee County after detectives from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team found an active meth lab at 111 South Tamarack Street in Laurium in December.  U.P.S.E.T. detectives said they also found evidence there that suggests Henderson was delivering narcotics.
