In the 33rd Circuit Court today, Edwin Lee Sarasin, 56, Charlevoix, was sentenced to serve 38 to 60 months in prison on a charge of receiving and concealing stolen property $1000 or more but less than $20,000.
Sarasin had pleaded guilty on March 23 and was originally sentenced on April 26. At that time, he was placed on 18 months of probation and was given credit for 359 days served.
On May 15, police were called to Ferry Beach where Sarasin was found highly intoxicated, having damaged property in the public bathroom and creating a public disturbance. Sarasin was found guilty of a probation violation and was re-sentenced.
In the original case, Sarasin was found outside of a condominium in the City of Charlevoix together with many personal items stolen from inside of one of the units. He was initially charged with home invasion as well as resisting and obstructing police.
Sarasin had previously been convicted of four felonies and 14 misdemeanors, most relating to the use of alcohol and being combative with police officers.
