LUDINGTON — An 18-year-old Eden Township woman pleaded guilty in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, June 7, to a felony of tampering with an electronic monitoring device (tether).

In exchange for Cara Antoinette Monton’s plea, she was to be released from jail Tuesday after serving 90 days.

Monton, of 3374 S. Tuttle Rd., was arrested April 1 by the Mason County Sheriff’s Office. She testified Tuesday that she used scissors to cut off her tether, Feb. 5.

Monton was also ordered to a one-year discretionary jail term, which runs concurrently with her other criminal files. She must also pay restitution to the tether company in an amount yet to be determined, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

Sentencing is set for July 19 at 1:30 p.m.
