LUDINGTON – A 46-year-old Ludington man faces serving two and a half to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Oct. 16, to third-offense operating while intoxicated.

Jason Daniel Brocker, of 710 E. Loomis St., testified that during his recent arrest last August in the City of Ludington his blood alcohol content was .325, which is more than four times the legal limit.

Brocker has previous drunk driving convictions in 1996, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2008 and 2012, said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.

According to statute, third-offense is the highest amount for which a defendant can be convicted of drunk driving, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola. “The other convictions are factored into the sentencing guidelines.” In Brocker’s case, his sentencing guidelines are seven to 46 months.

Brocker also pleaded guilty Tuesday to fourth-offense habitual offender. One count of second-offense driving while license suspended was dismissed.

Sentencing is set for Dec. 4 at 2 p.m.
