HART — A 19-year-old Shelby man who pleaded guilty in 27th Circuit Court last month to three counts of cocaine delivery less than 50 grams pleaded guilty to another count of cocaine delivery Monday, Jan. 22, in a separate case.

Brent Douglas Krauss faces serving up to a year in jail in exchange for his guilty plea.

Cocaine delivery less than 50 grams is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

Krauss testified before Judge Bradley G. Lambrix that last June in Grant Township he was in possession of the cocaine, which he planned to share with friends. However, he “didn’t make it” into the Electric Forest Festival before he was apprehended.

Sentencing is set for April 2 at 9 a.m.

In his other case, Krauss testified that he sold 3.5 grams of cocaine for $230 on three separate occasions in Oceana County. He sold the drugs to an undercover officer, Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon said.

Sentencing in that case is set for Feb. 26 at 9 a.m.
