LUDINGTON — A 32-year-old Ludington man was sentenced to serve 45 days up front of a one-year discretionary jail term for a conviction of attempted assault by strangulation Tuesday, Feb. 21, in 51st Circuit Court

Ramon Munoz, of 204 E. Foster St., has already completed his 45 days in jail, said his attorney Kate Glancy. Munoz will now be placed on Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM) for 120 days as part of his sentence.

Munoz was initially charged with a felony of assault by strangulation and a misdemeanor of domestic violence, which were dismissed in a plea agreement, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

Judge Susan K. Sniegowski also ordered that Munoz serve two years probation.

Munoz’s sentence runs concurrently with a district court case, Spaniola said.

It is Munoz’s first felony conviction, the prosecutor said, however he has many misdemeanors on his record. Munoz’s criminal background is “associated with alcohol and substance abuse,” Spaniola said.
