LUDINGTON — A 24-year-old Ludington man was sentenced to serve 18 months to five years in prison for probation violation in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Oct. 24.

Curtis Jerome Johnson, of 608 E. Dowland St., received credit for 389 days served in jail.

“You have repeatedly failed to comply with your requirements of probation,” said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski. “The only choice left for the court at this time is a sentence with the Michigan Department of Corrections.”

Johnson was also sentenced to serve 56 days in jail, with credit for 56 days served, for a conviction of resisting arrest. The two sentences run concurrently.

Johnson testified last month that he suffered an anxiety attack and ran away from the police officer. “I just took off running,” he said. The officer was attempting to search his backpack, he said.
