LUDINGTON — A 23-year-old Pentwater man pleaded guilty to two counts of assaulting/resisting/obstructing police and second-offense habitual offender in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Garrett Scott Buck’s plea agreement includes serving five months in jail of a one-year discretionary jail sentence. In exchange for Buck’s guilty plea, two additional counts of assaulting/resisting/obstructing police were dismissed.

Buck, of 2622 Anthony Rd., was arrested July 2 by the Ludington Police Department. The first count he pleaded guilty to refers to Buck resisting an LPD officer, and the second count refers to Buck spitting on an emergency medical technician (EMT).

Sentencing guidelines for the conviction are 0-23 months, said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski. The maximum penalty for the offense is two years in prison, and his habitual offender status elevates the maximum penalty to three years, Sniegowski said.

Sentencing is set for Dec. 1 at 1:30 p.m.
