LUDINGTON — A 26-year-old Ludington woman was sentenced to serve 11 months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term for a felony conviction of uttering and publishing in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Dec. 15.

Kaleigh Lynn Clark, of 707 W. Ludington Ave., also received a concurrent term of 93 days in jail for a misdemeanor conviction of larceny under $200.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola described Clark as having “a long-standing history of larceny offenses.”

“I would like to apologize to everybody I have affected because of my bad decisions,” Clark said. “It’s been a long road of bad decisions.”

“When you’re involved in this kind of activity, you have to realize how it affects other people,” said Judge Jeffrey Nellis, who also ordered that Clark serve two years probation. “Perhaps you can turn the corner.”

Clark received credit for 132 days served in jail.
