A White Lake couple charged last year with delivering and manufacturing marijuana out of their Waterford Township businesses pleaded guilty last week.
William Joseph and Candace Jean Teichman entered pleas on Tuesday, Aug. 30 in front of Oakland County Circuit Court Judges Phyllis McMillen and Rae Lee Chabot, respectively.
Last August, Oakland County’s Narcotics Enforcement Team (NET) raided a trio of area businesses, two of which were owned by the Teichmans, including Everybody’s Cafe, and Herbal Remedies. An unrelated business in Ferndale was also raided.
As a result, 15 people including the Teichmans were arrested and arraigned on various charges, including possession and manufacturing with intent to deliver marijuana. The arrests also netted growing equipment, firearms, and other illegal drugs.
William Teichman pleaded guilty to nine felony counts, and Candace pleaded guilty as charged to 12 counts, many involving conspiracy to deliver marijuana and the delivery and manufacturing of marijuana.
Sentencing for the couple is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 11.
