LUDINGTON — A 37-year-old Baldwin man with a “lengthy criminal history” was sentenced in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Oct. 10, to serve six months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term for convictions of cocaine possession, reckless driving and third-offense habitual offender.

Nicholas Alexander Ream, of 695 Kahill Dr., Apt. A2, Baldwin, was also initially facing charges of cocaine delivery, bringing contraband to prison and maintaining a drug house. Those charges were dismissed when he pleaded guilty to the other charges.

Ream has a “lengthy criminal history” involving drugs, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola. He has seven felony and 15 misdemeanor convictions, the prosecutor said.

Sentencing guidelines in the case are two to 25 months, said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.

The judge also ordered two years of probation. Ream received credit for one day served in jail.

Sniegowski also ordered a concurrent jail term of 93 days for Ream’s reckless driving conviction. She said his driver’s license will be suspended by the Secretary of State.
