LUDINGTON — A 52-year-old Southfield, Michigan man faces serving four months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term after pleading guilty to identity theft and third-offense habitual offender in 51st Circuit Court Monday, June 12.

Lloyd Anthony Andrews was arrested May 1 by the Ludington Police Department (LPD) after using a Mason County resident’s personal info to obtain utilities for his Southfield apartment.

In exchange for his guilty plea Monday, an additional count of identity theft was dismissed.

Andrews will also be sentenced to probation as part of the plea agreement. Restitution in the amount of $279.06 to Consumers Energy and $753.54 to DTE will also be ordered.

“I purchased it from a so-called friend,” Andrews testified regarding how he obtained the info. “I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.”

Sentencing is set for Aug. 15.
