      Man involved in $100,000 fraud pled no contest

      The Kincheloe man who allegedly scammed U.P. residents out of $100,000 selling windmills, was in court today.

      Billy Lee Parish pled no contest to larceny by conversion of $20,000 or more. In exchange for the plea, the court reduced his habitual offender charge. He would have been facing up to 20 years in prison, but the reduced charge dropped the time to a maximum of 15 years. Parish may be facing charges in other counties as well. His sentencing is scheduled for June 3.
