PM Township man pleads guilty to attempted uttering, publishing.

By Allison Scarbrough. Editor.

LUDINGTON — A 32-year-old Pere Marquette Township man pleaded guilty in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Oct. 3, to two counts of attempted uttering and publishing.

Jason L. Carr, of 1485 Betty Ave., faces serving three months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term in exchange for his plea.

He was initially charged with two counts of uttering and publishing and second-degree retail fraud, but those charges were dismissed in a plea agreement.

His co-defendant James Phillip Biggin III, 30, of Ludington was sentenced Tuesday to serve 10 months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term for a conviction of uttering and publishing.

The pair illegally used receipts at Walmart to get cash in order to buy drugs last December, Mason County Assistant Prosector Glen Jackson III said during Biggins’ sentencing.
