Judge issues warrant for no-show defendant.


By Allison Scarbrough. Editor.


LUDINGTON — A 57-year-old Ludington man who was scheduled to appear for his sentencing Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 31, in 51st Circuit Court for a felony conviction of resisting police failed to appear, and Judge Susan K. Sniegowski issued a warrant for his arrest.

Alan Glenn Ross, of 206 E. Danaher St., pleaded guilty, Sept. 7, to assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer — the second time in just over a year — along with a misdemeanor of domestic violence.

Ross also pleaded “no contest” to second-offense habitual offender.

Ross faced serving three months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term. He was initially charged with two counts of assaulting/resisting/obstructing police, and one count was dismissed as part of the plea agreement.

In July of 2016, Ross was sentenced by Judge Sniegowski to serve two months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term after a March of 2016 incident in which he punched a Mason County sheriff’s deputy in the face after kayaking along the Ludington pier, and allegedly harassing people on the breakwater. He was convicted of one felony count of assaulting, resisting, obstructing a police officer.

Ross’ attorney Mark Otto said he contacted Ross’ sister, with whom he lives, and she said he took off on his bike Oct. 25 and she has not seen him since.

Ross’ bond has been revoked.
