LSD dealer sent to jail.

By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

HART – A 28-year-old Grand Rapids man was sentenced to four months in jail in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Jan. 11, for a conviction of LSD delivery.

Steven Michael Nixon pleaded guilty Nov. 2, to delivery/manufacture of a schedule 1, 2, 3 drug — lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD).

Nixon previously testified before Judge Robert D. Springstead that he made a drug deal in a car pool parking lot in Shelby Township, Aug. 16, with a person who turned out to be a confidential informant.

Nixon told Judge Springstead that he had 10 sheets of LSD in his possession and sold “nine or 10 sheets” for $4,000.

Nixon appeared in court Monday with his attorney Anna Rapa via Zoom video conferencing due to COVID-19. Oceana County Assistant Prosecutor Chad DeRouin prosecuted the case.

Nixon received credit for three days served in jail. He was also sentenced to 18 months probation, and his driver’s license is suspended for six months with no restricted license available for 30 days. 

Nixon has two previous felony convictions and six misdemeanors, said Judge Springstead.

The judge warned him that prison will be his next step if he continues to break the law. “It’s absolutely time for you to get your act together,” he said. “This is the end of your road.”
