LUDINGTON — A 34-year-old Ludington man will be under constant watch to ensure that he does not drink alcohol through the use of a Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM) unit as part of his sentence for a resisting and obstructing a police officer conviction.

Ryan Ray Woods, of 1907 Sugar Grove Rd., was also ordered to two years probation and one year discretionary jail in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, March 10.

Woods, whose case had been adjourned for a lengthy time period due to a family tragedy, is performing well at his current job and oversees several employees, his attorney David Glancy said.

Sentencing guidelines called for 0-17 months incarceration.

Woods has made “a number of appearances in various courts dating back to 1988,”Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said, for several convictions including assault and battery and unlawful driving away of a motor vehicle.

His most recent conviction was “completely alcohol-related,” his attorney David Glancy said. “He has no recollection of the events that occurred.”

“Abstaining from alcohol completely would benefit you,” said Judge Susan Sniegowski.
