LUDINGTON — A 34-year-old homeless man was sentenced to one year in jail for convictions of larceny in a building, marijuana possession and fourth-offense habitual offender in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, March 6.

Kerricks stole a phone charger from the Mason County District Library Ludington branch, Oct. 26, 2017. He returned to the library, and when confronted about the theft, he returned it, said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.

Kerricks was on probation at the time of the offense, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola. His sentence runs concurrently with his probation violation case.

The judge ordered two years probation, and Kerricks received credit for 132 days served in jail.

Sentencing guidelines for the larceny conviction are 0-22 months and 0-11 months for the marijuana conviction.
