MARQUETTE — An Ishpeming man who was arrested for carrying components to produce methamphetamine in his backpack received his sentence Friday in Marquette County Circuit Court.
Twenty-one year-old Kyle Dorow was sentenced to 30 months to 20 years in jail with credit for 141 days served. He pleaded guilty to the charge of operating and/or maintaining a meth lab back in September.
As part of his sentencing, the court will also permit Dorow to do time in a special alternative incarceration (SAI) facility, such as boot camp, if the Department of Corrections will allow it.
“I think that there’s a clear, long and serious history of drug abuse in this case, but that there could be some benefit through a term with the Michigan Department of Corrections for being afforded the boot camp program if deemed eligible,” said Circuit Court Judge Jennifer Mazzuchi.
Judge Mazzuchi said the sentence reflects Dorow’s ongoing drug issues and the impact this crime has on the community.
Dorow was arrested on June eighth by Ishpeming Police when officers found him in possession of components used to make meth.
