HART — A 20-year-old Hesperia man who removed his tether in an attempt to evade probation personnel was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, July 17, to one year in jail.

Calvin Michael Chase, of 235 N. Division, was arrested last May by the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) for a felony of tampering with an electronic monitoring device.

“He removed the tether that he was assigned to wear,” said his attorney Michael Walsh. “It was recovered. He had his grandmother return it to the probation office.”

Chase apologized to Judge Robert D. Springstead, who gave him credit for 61 days served in jail.

Springstead said Chase is already on probation for his other criminal case and will remain on probation for a long time. “You’re off to a very rocky start,” he said.
