LUDINGTON — A 21-year-old Pere Marquette Township man was sentenced in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, April 24, to 18 months to four years in prison for convictions of assaulting/resisting/obstructing police and destroying an electronic monitoring device.

Doyle Paul Kenyon, of 5634 W. Johnson Rd., was was on parole for three convictions of second-degree home invasion in Newaygo County at the time he committed the offenses, stated Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

One count of fourth-offense habitual offender was dismissed when he pleaded guilty to the charges last March.

His prison term will run consecutively to any parole violation sanctions he receives.

Sentencing guidelines in the case are 5-35 months, Spaniola said.

Kenyon was also ordered to pay $1,374 in restitution for destroying the Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring (SCRAM) unit he was wearing.
