CADILLAC — A 30-year-old Cadillac man is facing multiple drug-related charges and one weapon-related charge after he was arraigned in 84th District Court Thursday.

Michael Allen Crosby was charged with one count of possession of methamphetamine, possession of cocaine less than 25 grams and possession of a dangerous weapon, metallic knuckles, for his connection with an incident on Sept. 18 in Cadillac. A habitual offender second offense notice was added to the charges which carries a penalty of 1.5 times the maximum sentence on the primary offense.

If convicted, Crosby faces up to 7.5 years in prison and $22,500 in fines.

The charges are merely accusations and not evidence of guilt. Crosby is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. The prosecution has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

A $100,000 cash or surety bond was issued and a probable cause conference was scheduled for 10 a.m. on July 2.
