Teen sent to jail for attempted imprisonment.
By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.
LUDINGTON – An 18-year-old homeless man was sentenced to serve six months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term for a conviction of attempted unlawful imprisonment in 51st Circuit Court Monday, Dec. 4.
Devin McKay Martin was initially facing felony charges of kidnapping and criminal sexual conduct – assault with intent to commit sexual penetration, which were dismissed.
McKay, who has been lodged in the Mason County Jail on a $50,000/cash/surety bond, received credit for 138 days served.
McKay must register as a sex offender.
“This was a very serious matter, and there have been struggles the victim has had,” said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.
McKay’s attorney, David Glancy, asked that his client be sentenced under the Holmes Youth Trainee Act, but Judge Susan K. Sniegowski denied it. “I don’t think it’s appropriate,” Sniegowski said.
McKay was also ordered to five years probation and must have no contact with the victim.
