LUDINGTON — A 23-year-old Ludington man accused of possessing brass knuckles is headed to trial in 51st Circuit Court, but he will be on a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew while out on bond.

Jonathan Sherrod Soloman-Jones, of 709 E. Filer St., was arrested Aug. 24 by the Ludington Police Department for dangerous weapons.

Soloman-Jones appeared in court Tuesday, Nov. 10, with his attorney, David Glancy, who said a plea agreement offered to his client has been rejected and the matter is headed to trial.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola made a motion that a condition be added to Solman-Jones’ bond for a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.

Spaniola said that on Oct. 15 at 2:55 a.m. Soloman-Jones was dressed in all black clothing and was found by a Ludington police officer in an area of the city that has had a high incidence of break-ins.

“There is no indication that Mr. Jones was committing any crimes or engaged in suspicious activity,” Glancy said. Soloman-Jones is employed in a third-shift job and is attending adult education classes, Glancy said.

Judge Susan K. Sniegowski granted the motion for the curfew, but with the exception of when Soloman-Jones is working and or attending adult ed classes.
