LUDINGTON — A 35-year-old Muskegon Heights man is looking at serving two-and-a half years in prison for felonies of conspiracy – weapons/firearms and felony firearm.

Eric Deon Wesley, 35, of 2825 Hoyt St., appeared in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, June 9, during a final conference hearing with his attorney, Al Swanson, Jr.

Wesley was arrested March 19 by the Ludington Police Department (LPD) and is currently free on a $10,000 bond.

Swanson said his client cannot comply with the current plea agreement offered by the prosecution, but is engaged in “continued efforts to try to resolve the matter.” Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said he was placing “another offer on the table” that includes Wesley pleading guilty to both counts and the prosecution dismissing a third-offense habitual offender notice. Wesley would serve two years in prison for the first count, followed by six months consecutively for the second count. Another final conference will be scheduled at the end of July or beginning of August.
