LUDINGTON — A 28-year-old Pentwater woman pleaded guilty to tampering with an electronic monitoring device and third-offense habitual offender in 51st Circuit Court Thursday, Sept. 7.

Nicole Lynn Kaiser, of 5086 Wayne Ave., was arrested June 23 by the Ludington Police Department on a felony charge of tampering with an electronic monitoring device and a fourth-offense habitual offender designation.

The fourth-offense habitual offender was dismissed when Kaiser pleaded to the third-offense designation. The fourth-offense status elevated her possible maximum term to 15 years, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

Kaiser also was sentenced 60 days for probation violation, said her attorney David Glancy.

“I let the battery die on it,” she told Judge Susan K. Sniegowski when asked what she did to her tether.

Kaiser then failed to report to her probation officer for approximately one month, Spaniola said.

Kaiser’s plea agreement calls for a one-year discretionary jail term with serving the first five months up front.

Kaiser’s previous convictions include fleeing and eluding police; delivery/manufacture of cocaine, heroin or another narcotic less than 50 grams; delivery of a schedule 1, 2, 3 drug; and possession of cocaine/heroin or another narcotic less than 25 grams, said Sniegowski.

Her sentence will include probation, which will require a substance abuse evaluation, Spaniola said. She must follow the evaluation’s recommendations.

Sentencing is set for Oct. 31 at 2:15 p.m.
