LUDINGTON — A 22-year-old Ludington man was sentenced to one and a half to three years in a Michigan Department of Corrections prison for tampering with an electronic monitoring device and second-offense habitual offender in 51st Circuit Court on Tuesday, July 7.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said Zachary Alan Shurlow was on parole for a 2012 conviction of two counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct at the time of the parole violation.

Due to violating his parole, Shurlow received zero days credit for his time served in jail, and his sentence runs consecutive to his parol violation term.

“Your Honor, I take full responsibility for what I’ve done,” Shurlow said to Judge Susan Sniegowski.

Sentencing guidelines were 0-21 months.
