Trial set for Kingsford man on drug sale charges

Daniel Yuhasey

IRON MOUNTAIN — A Kingsford man accused of selling drugs and imitation substances is set for a two-day jury trial Thursday, Dec. 12, in Dickinson County Circuit Court.

Daniel Yuhasey, 42, is charged with the delivery or manufacture of methamphetamine, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

But as a four-time habitual offender, Yuhasey could serve life in prison if convicted.

In a second file, Yuhasey is charged with the manufacture or distribution of a controlled substance imitation, a two-year felony increased to 15 years because of the habitual offender notice.

According to the criminal complaints, Yuhasey sold suspected methamphetamine to a confidential informant during controlled transactions in October and November. Laboratory tests confirmed the substance sold in October was methamphetamine; the substance tested in November was not a controlled substance, according to the complaints.

Yuhasey waived arraignment July 22, pleading not guilty in both files. The pleas were entered on his behalf by Dickinson County Circuit Judge Christopher Ninomiya.
