LUDINGTON — The man who is accused of running over Mason County Central Middle School teacher Scott Dumas in a grocery store parking lot is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.

Brian Keith Blackburn, 24, of 603 N. Delia scheduled to appear in 51st Circuit Court at 2:30 p.m.

Blackburn last appeared in court on July 15. At that time, his court appointed attorney, David Glancy, had requested more time.

Assistant Prosecutor Glenn Jackson III said Blackburn has been offered a 36 month prison term.

Blackburn has been charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated causing serious injury, a 5-year-maximum felony; failure to stop at a scene of an accident resulting in serious impairment, a 5-year maximum felony; two counts of assault/resisting/obstructing a police officer, 2-year maximum felonies; possession of marijuana, 1 year maximum misdemeanor; operating a vehicle while intoxicated, second offense, 1 year maximum misdemeanor. He is being held at the Mason County Jail with a $50,000 bond.

Jackson said if the case ends up going to trial and Blackburn is found guilty, there is a chance the sentence could go beyond the guidelines based on the seriousness of the crime.

On April 16, Dumas, 50, of Amber Township was walking through the Shop-N-Save parking lot when he was hit by a car. Within the hour, police arrested Blackburn.
