Serious Drug Felony Dismissed After Hearing – Montcalm County – The Defendant was charged with Delivery and Manufacture of Methamphetamines, a 20 year felony. Despite two alleged confessions by Defendant to the police drug team, and threats from the prosecutor to enhance the charges, Keeley Blanchard demanded a preliminary examination in the case. After the preliminary examination, Ms. Blanchard was able to show that both alleged confessions had been obtained illegally, in violation of the Defendant’s rights. The prosecutor, who previously thought the case was a “slam dunk,” dismissed all charges against the Defendant.
