LUDINGTON — A 38-year-old Ludington man with a long criminal history was sentenced in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Oct. 10, to a prison term of 46 months to 15 years for two felony convictions of resisting and obstructing police and fourth-offense habitual offender.

Elrico James Brooks, of 404 Sixth St., told Judge Susan K. Sniegowski that he is now taking responsibilities for his actions unlike he has done in his past criminal cases.

“I’ve been through a lot of stuff in my life, and I am here to take responsibility for my actions for what I have done,” Brooks said.

“Quite frankly, Mr. Brooks, what you’re telling me today, I have already heard before,” the judge said. “It’s too little, too late. You’ve had multiple opportunities to change your behavior, and you have not.

“It’s 2015 case, and since then you have had multiple violations,” the judge said.

His attorney, Al Swanson Jr., said his client has been receiving rehabilitative treatment and attending AA while in jail.

Brooks was initially charged with three counts of resisting and obstructing police, and one count was dismissed.

Brooks received credit for 535 days served in jail.
