Nicholas Rivard, 36, was arrested alongside Katelyn Rivard, 31, on October 7th, 2021, after the Menominee County/City Wide Drug Team executed a search warrant at their Menominee home. Rivard was charged with two counts of delivery of methamphetamine, two counts of delivery of heroin, and two counts of maintaining a drug house. A jury found him guilty of five of the six charges at the conclusion of a jury trial on Oct. 27, 2022. He was sentenced on December 22nd, 2022, to 8 to 40 years in prison. Rivard made a motion to dismiss his case based on entrapment. He also argued that the trial court erred by “not requiring the production of the confidential informant at trial” and by refusing to instruct the jury on the prosecution’s failure to produce a witness.” According to the court’s opinion, published Thursday, the Court of Appeals found that Rivard did not meet the burden of proof to support entrapment occurred. In addition, the court said Rivard had withdrawn his motion in trial court to disclose the confidential informant’s identity, previously waiving the issue and therefore “extinguishing any error” on behalf of the court.
