      Three appear in court for meth charges

      Wendy Hemmings, 40

      On Friday, two women and one man were arraigned in Gogebic County Circuit Court for possessing and manufacturing methamphetamine.

      All of the defendants could face 20 years in prison on the felony charges.

      Joel Graser, 35, and Kristin Carter, 31, stood mute. The judge entered a not guilty plea on their behalf.

      The third person, 40-year-old Wendy Hemmings, pled guilty, accepting a five-year plea deal from the prosecutor. Carter and Hemmings are sisters who were arrested in the same meth lab bust by law enforcement.

      The local drug enforcement team has busted seven other individuals since December for meth.
