By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.
LUDINGTON – A 46-year-old Ludington man was sentenced to two and a half to 15 years in prison for a conviction of third-offense operating while intoxicated in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Dec. 4.
Jason Daniel Brocker, of 710 E. Loomis St., testified that during his arrest last August in the City of Ludington his blood alcohol content was .325, which is more than four times the legal limit. Brocker pleaded guilty, Oct. 16.
Brocker has previous drunk driving convictions in 1996, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2008 and 2012, previously 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 to fourth-offense habitual offender. One count of second-offense driving while license suspended was dismissed.
He received credit for two days served in jail.
