LUDINGTON — The 38-year-old Ludington man who was found in possession of several “rocks” of crack cocaine while being booked into the Mason County Jail for driving on a suspended license and parole violation charges last December received a prison sentence in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, April 21.

Anthony Earl Green was ordered to serve a minimum of one year and six months to a maximum of 15 years in a Michigan Department of Corrections prison. He received no credit for the time he has already served in jail, and his sentence is consecutive to his parole violation conviction.

Green was arrested Dec. 10 by the Mason County Sheriff’s Office for felonies of prisoner possessing contraband, possession of cocaine, second-offense driving while license suspended and fourth-offense habitual offender. In a plea bargain, he was convicted of prisoner possessing contraband and fourth-offense habitual offender; while the other two counts were dismissed, March 3.

Green has prior cocaine convictions, Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said. Judge Susan Sniegowski noted that he has eight felony and seven misdemeanor convictions. The sentencing guidelines were five to 34 months, the judge added.
