Dad gets prison for hiding son’s drug assets
GRAND RAPIDS (AP) — A west Michigan man accused of hiding about $164,000 in drug trafficking-related assets obtained by his son has been sentenced to 18 months in prison.
U.S. Attorney Donald Davis announced the sentencing this week of 45-year-old Cheyenne Billie Trice Sr. of Jenison.
Prosecutors said Trice kept numerous luxury automobiles in his name that were paid for by his son, Cheyenne Billie Trice Jr.
Cheyenne Billie Trice Jr. previously pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute cocaine and crack cocaine. He will be sentenced Aug. 27.
U.S. District Court Judge Janet Neff said that by concealing the assets, the elder Trice enabled his son to commit his crime and avoid detection.

Hearing set in Asian Carp suit against feds
LANSING (AP) — A hearing has been set in a multistate lawsuit that demands tougher federal and municipal action to prevent Asian carp from overrunning the Great Lakes and decimating their fishing industry.
The suit filed in U.S. District Court in northern Illinois accuses the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago of creating a public nuisance by operating locks, gates and other infrastructure through which the carp could enter the lakes.
Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox said in a release Tuesday the first hearing will be held Aug. 23. Two days during the week of Aug. 30 have been reserved for possible testimony.
Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Minnesota and Pennsylvania filed the complaint after being rebuffed twice by the U.S. Supreme Court.
