Today in the 33rd Circuit Court, Jesse James Johnson, 27, of East Jordan, was sentenced to 18 months to 15 years in prison on a charge of second degree home invasion.
Johnson pleaded guilty on July 24 to the charge, admitting that he broke into two homes in Hudson Township looking for food or drugs to steal.
The second home invasion charge was dismissed as part of the plea agreement. Johnson was ordered to pay restitution to both homeowners totaling $1,899.03.
Also Travis Jon Nelson, 25, of Boyne City, was sentenced to 24 months on probation including six months of jail time to be served immediately and three months held in abeyance.
Nelson pleaded no contest to carrying a weapon with unlawful intent on June 2, 2015 in Bay Township. Nelson put a gun to his own head then fired into the air several times while intoxicated.
He also called 911 and threatened police officers. Before officers arrived on the scene, family members were able to subdue Nelson without incident.
Trevor James Blackwell, 23, of Charlevoix, was sentenced to six months in jail, with credit for 111 days already served, on a charge of possession of marijuana.
Blackwell was stopped by officers due to outstanding arrest warrants. When he was taken into custody, he was found to have marijuana in his vehicle in a backpack.
