ESCANABA - An Escanaba man was sentenced Friday to six months in jail on a drug charge stemming from a two-county sweep of arrests in Delta and Marquette counties last December.

Ricky Allen Seymour, 18, was arrested Dec. 2 by detectives from the Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team (UPSET). He was originally charged with two counts of delivery of marijuana and later made a court agreement, pleading guilty to maintaining a drug house.

During his plea bargain, he admitted to the court that he had sold marijuana.

During his sentencing in Delta County Circuit Court Friday, he was ordered to spend six months in the county jail. He was given credit for 61 days already served. He also was sentenced to $728 in fines, costs and restitution.

Two other men from Delta County who were arrested by UPSET detectives on Dec. 2 were Donald Louis Kang, 21, and John Allen Tilot, 26, both of Escanaba.

Tilot pleaded guilty to use of analogues and was sentenced to 45 days in jail plus restitution, $1,103 in fines and costs, and 12 months probation.

Kang pleaded guilty to two counts of delivery/manufacturing Buprenorphene, also known as Suboxone. Each count carries a maximum punishment of seven years in prison and a $10,000 fine. He will be sentenced on April 18. He remains free on bond.
