Man pleads guilty to meth charge in federal court

MARQUETTE — A Minnesota man who has admitted distributing meth near an Upper Peninsula elementary school playground entered into a plea agreement with federal prosecutors in Marquette.

Dylan Quigley-Robinson, 21, of Hutchinson, Minnesota pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court to possession of meth with intent to distribute.  For his guilty plea, no further charges will be filed.  An indictment against him was dismissed after he pleaded guilty to one-count federal felony information.

This spring, Ironwood Public Safety found Quigley-Robinson in a vehicle with 50 grams of meth, worth $10,000, as well as marijuana and cash.

Quigley-Robinson faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a $1 million dollar fine.  A sentencing date has not been scheduled yet.
