      Plea deal for Backroom Obsessions owner

      Storefront of former Backroom Obsessions in Marquette, Michigan

      The criminal case against the owner of the Marquette business, adult novelty store Backroom Obsessions, has been resolved in a plea deal.

      Last December, police seized several dangerous items, including bath salts, from the store.

      Under the agreement, the owner, 46-year-old Michael Jestila, will have a criminal charge, a nuisance complaint and two forfeiture actions against him dropped.

      In return, he'll pay the Marquette Police Department $20,000, permanently close the building, and never again do business in Marquette County.

      He's still facing similar charges in Houghton.
