Man faces jail after pleading guilty to felony firearms, ammo possession.

LUDINGTON — A 59-year-old Pere Marquette Township man faces serving three 30-day jail terms after pleading guilty to felony charges of possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of ammunition by a felon and second-offense habitual offender in 51st Circuit Court Tuesday, Jan. 11.

Mark Allen Nash, Sr., of 4124 W. Kinney Rd., was arrested Nov. 19 by the Ludington Police Department.

Police visited Nash’s house last November following up on an incident that began at school with his son, said Mason County Assistant Prosecutor Beth Hand. No criminal charges resulted in the school incident.

When police arrived, they discovered that the house “was less than liveable,” said Hand. As part of his probation, Nash will be ordered to clean his house. Three years probation is included in the sentencing agreement. 

He will also be sentenced to serve 90 days up front of a one-year jail term. Three 30-day increments will be ordered due to Nash receiving Social Security disability benefits that would be terminated if he served the 90 days consecutively.

Two counts of attempted felony firearm were dismissed.

Nash has a previous felony conviction of delivery/manufacture of marijuana, said Judge Susan K. Sniegowski.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 22 at 1 p.m.
