Assault leads to jail time
ESCANABA – An Escanaba man was sentenced Monday to 11 months in the county jail in connection with home invasion and assaulting a Bark River man in 2011.
Michael Scott Jones, 20, was sentenced in Delta County Circuit Court on one count of home invasion, third degree, for entering a dwelling in Bark River Township and assaulting a Bark River man on Oct. 22, 2011.
Jones will be placed on probation for 18 months. He was given credit for 111 days served in jail. He was ordered to pay $928 in fines and costs.
Jones is one of three people arrested in connection with the incident. Alyna Caryn Brunette, 21, of Escanaba, was sentenced in January to seven months in the county jail on one count of attempted larceny in a building.
Last month, Ashley Marie Stodola, 20, of Escanaba, pleaded guilty to second-degree home invasion and pleaded guilty to attempted larceny in a building, as a habitual offender. She is scheduled to be sentenced in circuit court on March 15.
Second-degree home invasion, as a habitual offender, carries a maximum punishment of 22.5 years in prison. Attempted larceny in a building, as a habitual offender, carries a maximum sentencing of three years in prison.
The three defendants were arrested last fall following a year-long investigation by the Michigan State Police Post in Gladstone.
