Milwaukee men sentenced in 2017 drug case

CRYSTAL FALLS — A pair of Milwaukee men were sentenced in Iron County Trial Court on Feb. 3 for delivery of controlled substances in Iron River in March 2017.
    Kenneth Michael Greer, 36, was sentenced by Iron County Judge Donald S. Powell to six to 20 years in prison for delivery of a substance containing heroin/cocaine, while Davin Vincent Veir-Washington was sentenced to one year in county jail for delivery of a substance containing heroin/cocaine.
    Greer’s sentence will run concurrently with a Dickinson County sentence of seven to 30 years in prison stemming from delivery of a controlled substance in April 2017. Greer is currently serving his time with the Michigan Department of Corrections in the Marquette Branch Prison.
    Veir-Washington’s sentence will run concurrently with his sentence in Marinette County of four years in prison for possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance.
    The local case involving Greer and Veir-Washington stemmed from charges that were linked to the March 2017 overdose death of 31-year-old Jamie Iraci in Iron River.
    During Greer’s sentencing hearing, defense attorney Jeffrey Paupore motioned to strike any reference to the Iraci death from the record. During Veir-Washington’s sentencing hearing, defense attorney Abbey Anderson spoke to the same point.
