LUDINGTON — A 19-year-old Scottville man was sentenced in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Oct. 10, to serve four months up front of one-year discretionary jail term for a conviction of felonious assault.

Daron Eugene Porter, of 306 E. State St., was arrested last July by the Scottville Police Department on two felony charges of assault with a dangerous weapon/felonious assault, two misdemeanor counts of domestic violence and one count of malicious destruction of property less than $200.

The other four charges were dismissed in a plea agreement last August.

The sentencing guidelines in the case are 0-9 months, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

“The PSI (pre-sentence investigation) report paints a picture of a past history of an assaultive nature,” Spaniola said.

“Certainly Mr. Porter acted inappropriately,” the prosecutor said. “To be frank, he hasn’t had many breaks in life.”

Porter’s defense attorney David Glancy agreed with Spaniola that Porter has suffered from “underlying issues.” His client has “been working with community mental health while he’s been incarcerated and will continue to do so to address some of the underlying issues,” Glancy said.

“It is clear that you are in need of continued mental health treatment, and I urge you to continue to take advantage of it,” said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.

Porter was also sentenced to two years of probation. He received credit for 88 days served in jail.
