Ludington man faces prison for CSC.

By Allison Scarbrough. Editor.

LUDINGTON — Scott Samuel-Ray MacArthur, 21, of 713 East Filer St., Ludington, faces three-and-a-half years to 200 months in prison after pleading guilty in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Oct. 4, to attempted third-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC).

MacArthur was arrested last April by the Ludington Police Department for felonies of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, accosting a child for immoral purposes and fourth-offense habitual offender. He has been lodged in the Mason County Jail on a $50,000/cash/surety bond.

He testified Tuesday that he attempted to engage in sexual penetration with a girl 13-15 years of age last February at Nader’s Motel in Ludington.

In exchange for his plea, the two counts he was originally charged with were dismissed.

MacArthur, who will have to register as sex offender, faced life in prison based on his habitual offender status.

Sentencing is set for Nov 15 at 2:15 p.m.
