A 52 year-old Hubbard Lake man with a lengthy criminal history is headed back to prison.

Robert “Bobby” Nolan has received 42 months to 20 years in prison on charges related to the manufacturing and sale of methamphetamine.

Nolan was busted after a confidential informant purchased a small amount of the drug from him at his house.

Nolan apologized for the “hardship” his drug addiction has caused his family and the community prior to sentencing. His attorney added that Nolan’s life has been “ravished” by a lifelong drug addiction that started when Nolan was in his teens.

Prosecutor Ed Black noted that Nolan’s criminal history includes 10 prior felony and 6 misdemeanor convictions. He also reminded the court that Nolan was manufacturing and selling meth out of his home even though children were present.

In 2007 Nolan was sent to prison for 4 to 20 years for selling 57 grams of cocaine to a police informant. At the time of the sale, it was the largest cocaine bust in Alpena County in more than a decade.
