LUDINGTON — A 35-year-old Ludington man was sentenced to serve 10 months up front of a one-year discretionary jail sentence Tuesday, Nov. 17, in 51st Circuit Court for convictions of assaulting/resisting/obstructing police and domestic violence.

Elrico James Brooks was arrested last December by Ludington Police Department and has been lodged in the Mason County Jail for 313 days since the incident. He received credit Tuesday for his time served.

“It’s been a long road for me,” Brooks said to the Judge Susan K. Sniegowski. “I’ve been in jail for about a year. I apologize to the officers for not complying.”

“What Mr. Brooks has is a history of failing to follow commands,” Sniegowski said.

Brooks was also sentenced to two years probation, and he must have no contact with the domestic assault victim. Sniegowski specified that he is not to be within four city blocks of the victim. He was also ordered to 90 days on a tether at court’s discretion.
