LUDINGTON – A 31-year-old Ludington man was sentenced to serve six months up front of a one-year discretionary jail term for a conviction of third-offense domestic violence Tuesday, Dec. 11, in 51st Circuit Court.

Deshawn Erik Latimer, of 915 E. Maple St., pleaded guilty to the charge last month.

Judge Susan K. Sniegowski also sentenced Latimer to two years probation. He received credit for one day served in jail.

Latimer initially faced felony charges of assault by strangulation, which is a 10-year felony, and third-offense habitual offender.

Third-offense domestic violence is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

Sentencing guidelines in the case are two to 17 months, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

The assault occurred June 8 in the City of Ludington.

“We had some words, and it got physical,” Latimer previously told the judge.

Latimer has previous domestic violence convictions in 2009 and 2015, the judge said.
