BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - A 31-year-old Biloxi man faces a maximum of 30 years in prison as a habitual offender who has pleaded guilty to distributing cocaine.
The Sun Herald reports Marcus Andraius Michael pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession with intent to distribute cocaine.
He entered his plea in Harrison County Circuit Court before Judge Lisa Dodson, who set sentencing for Dec. 10.
Michael has two prior felony convictions from 2003 for the sale of cocaine, and is being prosecuted under the state's habitual offender laws.
The latest conviction came from his arrest April 7, 2011, when narcotics officers with the Biloxi Department said they found Michael with 58 grams of cocaine.
