LUDINGTON — A 22-year-old Hamlin Township man was sentenced to serve 122 days up front, with credit for 122 days served, of a one-year discretionary jail term Tuesday, Oct. 24, in 51st Circuit Court for a conviction of attempted felonious assault.

Cody Morgan Denton of 2630 N. Sherman Rd., is “still facing other matters in other jurisdictions,” said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola. Denton’s $50,000 bond was revoked “due to his behavior.”

Denton faces criminal charges in Oceana County, but has not yet been arraigned.

“Mr. Denton has been involved in the court system either as a juvenile or as an adult pretty consistently since 2008,” said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski. “It’s time to make a change,” the judge said to Denton. “You could end up back in prison.”

According to the Offender Tracking Information System (OTIS), Denton in 2012 served prison terms of two to 15 years for second-degree home invasion; one and a half to 15 years for breaking and entering a building with intent; and one and a half to four years for marijuana delivery. In 2011, he was sentenced to a maximum of two years for marijuana delivery.

The judge urged Denton to take advantage of substance abuse services during his incarceration.
