Waterford Couple Charged In 2010 Medical Marijuana Raids Plead Guilty


Recommended Posts



A couple who at one time opened their restaurant to medical marijuana patients and were subsequently charged in the 2010 medical marijuana raids each has pleaded guilty as charged this week.


William and Candace Teichman of White Lake entered pleas before Judge Phyllis McMillen and Judge Rae Lee Chabot, respectively, on Tuesday.


The couple owned Everybody’s Cafe in Waterford Township, which was raided in August 2010 by the Oakland County’s Narcotics Enforcement Team. Officers also searched the Teichmans’ home.


They were briefly jailed in March on a bond revocation matter.


William Teichman pleaded to nine counts Tuesday, many involving the delivery and manufacture of marijuana. Candace also pleaded guilty as charged.


Both will be sentenced on Oct. 11.


In June ,a person who had been arrested during the raids was sentenced to jail time, fines and costs, random drug and alcohol testing, outpatient substance abuse treatment and probation.


A call has been placed to the Teichmans’ attorney Michael Komorn about the case.


In the case of Candace Teichman, McMillen said she used to live in the same neighborhood as her and that they were in a golf league together. Also, she said her husband, who is an attorney, represented Candace Teichman in a previous divorce.


McMillen recused herself, and Judge Chabot was assigned to Candace Teichman’s case.

A man criminally charged in connection with raids on medical marijuana businesses was sentenced Thursday to a year of probation.


Matthew John-Drinnon Miller of Waterford Township was also ordered to complete 30 days of community service.


Miller and a number of other people were charged as part of the Aug. 25, 2010 raids on Everybody’s Cafe and Herbal Remedies in Waterford Township. Miller worked at Herbal Remedies.


Court records show Miller pleaded no contest to a charge of delivery/manufacture marijuana.


Miller said during his sentencing hearing in front of Oakland Circuit Judge Phyllis McMillen that he thought at the time he was in compliance with the law.


William and Candace Teichman operated Everybody’s Cafe and Herbal Remedies. They were each sentenced in October to one year of probation after pleading guilty to various drug charges.


Their cases became part of a public dispute involving interpretations of the state’s medical marijuana law.
