LUDINGTON — A 25-year-old Mount Morris, Michigan man was sentenced Tuesday, Jan. 5, in 51st Circuit Court to serve six months up front of a one-year discretionary jail sentence for a conviction of second-degree home invasion.

In exchange for Michael Scott Bailey’s guilty plea last November, six felony counts were dismissed, which include three felony firearm counts; one first-degree home invasion count; one count of larceny of firearms; and one count of receiving and concealing stolen firearms.

Bailey testified in November that he and two co-defendants entered a home in Amber Township on Jan. 23, 2014 that is owned by a co-defendant’s grandfather. Part of his plea agreement is to provide truthful testimony against the co-defendants

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said “a large amount of items were taken, mainly firearms.”

Bailey, who received five days jail credit for time served, was also ordered to two years probation.
