DeSmet man sentenced on felony drug charge

A DeSmet man has been sentenced on a felony drug charge.  

54-year-old Michael Giedd was sentenced in Lake County Circuit Court this week on one count of Unauthorized Ingestion of a Controlled Drug or Substance.  

Circuit Court Judge Pat Pardy sentenced Giedd to serve four years in the state penitentiary, but suspended the penitentiary time based on several conditions.  Some of the conditions include that Giedd serve 40 days in the county jail, be on probation for three years, and pay fine and court costs totaling close to 800-dollars.  He also must re-pay his court-appointed attorney’s fees, among several other conditions.
