Delta County man sentenced on home invasion charge
ESCANABA, MI-- An Escanaba man is headed back to jail for breaking into a Bark River man’s home last October.
Michael Jones, 20, was sentenced Monday to 11 months in jail on a third-degree home invasion charge. He was given credit for 111 days already served.
Jones was originally charged with felonious assault, conspiracy to commit larceny, and first- and third-degree home invasion.
He and two co-defendants were arrested October 22 after they allegedly broke into the victim’s home, beat him up, and stole money.
Jones pleaded guilty to the lesser home invasion charge in January. He must also serve 18 months of probation.
