LUDINGTON — A 30-year-old Hart man was sentenced in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Feb. 18, to time served and was ordered to re-enter drug rehabilitation for convictions of interfering with electronic communications and second-offense domestic violence, along with a third-offense habitual offender designation.

Jordan Lee Hasty-Ruschkewicz, of 3670 W. Polk Rd., pleaded guilty to the charges last November.

Hasty-Ruschkewicz has eight prior felonies and eight prior misdemeanors, said Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spaniola.

He was sentenced to one year discretionary jail with 80 days up front and credit for 80 days served in jail. Judge Susan K. Sniegowski ordered that he be placed on a tether until he enters rehab.

“We are still working on getting him into rehabilitation services, but there are no beds available,” said Hasty-Ruschkewicz’s attorney, Cory Rickett.

“Treatment is really necessary in this case,” said Judge Sniegowski. “My concern is that you would take off and disappear until you can get into treatment.” The judge added a condition to his sentence that he be placed on a tether in the meantime.

He also was sentenced to two years probation.

Sentencing guidelines in the case are 5-25 months.
