Trooper’s sister avoids jail time

February 19, 2015


LUDINGTON — The sister of Michigan State Police Trooper Sammy Seymour, who was arrested last month by the Ludington Police Department for drunk driving, was sentenced in 79th District Court Tuesday, Feb. 17, after pleading no contest to attempted assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer.

While her brother was being arrested, Septrion “reportedly became belligerent and attempted to kick the back window out of a Mason County Sheriff’s Office patrol car,” according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole. “She then reportedly assaulted an LPD officer and resisted a county deputy.” Assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer is a felony crime punishable by up to two years in prison.

Judge Peter J. Wadel sentenced Septrion to one day in jail with credit for one day served; may not possess/buy/use alcohol or illicit drugs; must not violate any laws; must comply with the court sentence; and $590 in fines and costs.

Seymour is set for a pretrial March 6 at 10 a.m., according to court staff.
