HART — A 25-year-old Hart man currently incarcerated in prison faces up to 44 additional months in prison after pleading “no contest” in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Feb. 1, to delivery of fetanyl.

Foster Lewis Mudget was facing a more serious charge of delivery of a controlled substance causing death stemming from the death of 46-year-old Annette Conkle, who died in October of 2014. That count was dismissed when he pleaded to the lesser charge Monday.

Conkle “had overdosed and ultimately died as a result of the overdose,” a State, Sheriffs’, Chiefs’ Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT) press release stated. “In the fall of 2014, members of the Hart City Police Department responded to an address in the 200 block of Dryden. On scene, they located the woman who had overdosed.”

The maximum penalty for the conviction is seven years in prison.

Mudget avoids potential civil liability with the “no contest” plea.

According to the Offender Tracking Information System (OTIS), Mudget is lodged in the West Shoreline Correctional Facility in Muskegon Heights, serving a 13-month to five-year sentence for an organized retail crime act violation conviction in Muskegon County. His earliest release date is April 18.

Sentencing is slated for March 14 at 9 a.m.
