LUDINGTON — A 40-year-old man with a lengthy criminal history in the Mason County court system faces serving two and a half to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty Tuesday, Oct. 3, in 51st Circuit Court to absconding bond and fourth-offense habitual offender
David Duane Bothwell, who is lodged in the Mason County Jail on a $50,000 cash bond, was also facing a charge of third-offense domestic violence in separate court file. That charge was dismissed when he pleaded guilty as charged in the other file.
Bothwell testified Tuesday that he failed to appear in court for the domestic violence charge and then was apprehended out of state last July. His address listed in his court file is “Kentucky.”
Bothwell has previous convictions in Mason County of unlawful driving away of an automobile (car theft), breaking and entering a vehicle, uttering and publishing and second-degree home invasion, said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.
Sentencing is set for Dec. 5 at 1:45 p.m.
