Probation violation leads to prison, boot camp possible.

LUDINGTON — A 33-year-old Scottville man was sentenced to serve 17-48 months in prison, with credit for 328 days served, for a probation violation conviction Monday, June 12, in 51st Circuit Court.

Eric William Carrol pleaded guilty last month to heroin possession. He was sentenced Monday to a concurrent term of 103 days up front of a six-month discretionary jail term with credit for 103 days served.

Carrol was arrested in March by the State, Sheriff, Chiefs Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT) on US 31 expressway in Summit Township.

Judge Susan K. Sniegowski said she has no objection to Carrol serving his time in a Special Alternative Incarceration (SAI) program or “boot camp.”

The heroin possession charge has a maximum imprisonment of four years incarceration. However, Carroll is a repeat offender with previous drug convictions, and the maximum sentencing was elevated to eight years in prison.

Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola said Carrol has 17 prior misdemeanor convictions and five previous felonies.
