LUDINGTON — A Sheridan Township man charged with multiple counts is taking his case to trial after he turned down a plea agreement from the Mason County Prosecuting Attorney today in 51st Circuit Court. Michael Ryan Albaugh, 29, of 7008 E. Oakridge St., was arrested last spring by the Mason County Sheriff’s Office and charged with felonies of home invasion second degree, breaking and entering a building with intent, unlawful driving away of an automobile and second-offense habitual offender.

Home invasion second degree has a maximum penalty of 15 years imprisonment; B&E with intent, 10 years; UDAA, five years. The repeat offender status elevates the primary offense to a maximum of 1 1/2 times, which would be 22 1/2 years.

The Mason County Prosecutor’s Office offered to drop the breaking and entering charge in exchange of Albaugh pleading guilty to home invasion second degree and UDAA and serving three to 15 years in prison.
