Kingsford woman pleads not guilty

Faces potential life sentence on drug charge


IRON MOUNTAIN — A Kingsford woman accused of selling methamphetamine pleaded not guilty Tuesday in Dickinson County Circuit Court.

Julie Miller, 39, is charged with the delivery or manufacture of a controlled substance, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

As a four-time habitual offender, Miller could serve up to life in prison if convicted.

Miller waived arraignment and was not required to appear in court in person. Dickinson County Circuit Judge Christopher Ninomiya entered Miller’s not guilty plea on her behalf.

According to the criminal complaint, the KIND Drug Enforcement Team arrested Miller for selling methamphetamine to a confidential informant Sept. 1.

A pre-trial conference is set for April 6. Miller is free on a $15,000 cash or surety bond.
