LUDINGTON — A local homeless man was sentenced in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Aug. 9, to serve nine months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term for a felony of failure to register as a sex offender.

Douglas Andrew Wilson, 54, pleaded guilty to the charge last June.

Wilson addressed the court, stating that probation will be difficult due to being homeless.

Judge Susan K. Sniegowski followed the plea agreement, ordering one-and-a-half years probation.

“You need to work with probation and overcome the challenges of homelessness,” said Sniegowski. “Keeping others informed is your last priority, and you need to make it your first priority.”

Wilson received credit for 124 days served in jail.
