LUDINGTON — A 22-year-old Summit Township woman was sentenced to one year and one day to four years in prison for convictions of possession of analogues and probation violation in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Dec. 15.

Jenna Diane Myers, 22, of 4631 W. Deren Road, is eligible for Special Alternative Incarceration (SAI) or “boot camp,” and Judge Susan K. Sniegowski did not object to Myers being placed in the SAI program.

“I’m 22 and realized how much of my life I have wasted,” Myers said. “I know I’ve had a lot of chances. This really is a blessing in disguise. I would like to to thank everyone who has believed in me.”

Hopefully, the Michigan Department Corrections gives her the “tools she needs to find help with her substance abuse issues,” said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

“She is very nervous about going to prison,” said her attorney Ryan Glanville, who also noted that she had “lots of family and friends supporting her.”

Myers received credit for 50 days served in jail for the first count and 240 days jail credit for the second count.

Judge Susan K. Sniegowski noted that Myers has five prior misdemeanor and one felony conviction. The judge said that Myers had “multiple” probation violations and revoked her probation. Myers was immediately taken into custody to begin her sentence.
