LUDINGTON — A Ludington man charged with multiple felonies was sentenced to 2 to 15 years in prison today by 51st Circuit Court Susan Sniegowski.

Gary Allen Jacobsen, 25, of 207 S. Washington Ave., Apt. 1, initially entered a guilty plea before Judge Richard Cooper on June 26, 2014 for the charge of possession of the controlled substance morphine. However, he failed to appear for his Aug. 12 sentencing.

He was then arrested on Oct. 16 by the State Sheriffs’ Chiefs’ Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT) and charged with possession of analogues (morphine) — a 2-year felony — and also habitual offender fourth offense, elevating his potential punishment up to 15 years. He was also charged with absconding or forfeiting bond, a 4 year felony and assaulting and/or resisting a police officer, punishable by up to 2 years.

He has previous convictions of larceny of a motor vehicle, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and possession of analogues.

The June 2014 plea agreement was withdrawn from Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola, who then offered a plea agreement of serving 2 to 14 years in prison on the charge of possession of analogues. He also accepted a plea agreement of repeat offender and resisting/obstructing a police officer and will serve 18 to 24 months for that crime. He admitted to the court that when Mason County Sheriff Dep. Mike Fort arrived to arrest him that he resisted arrest.

The sentences would run concurrent.
