HART – A 28-year-old Muskegon man who pleaded guilty to two felony counts of delivery/manufacture of cocaine less than 50 grams was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Nov. 5, to 18 months to 20 years in prison.

Devontay Levon Thompson, of 2513 Hoyt St., Muskegon, was arrested by the State, Sheriffs, Chiefs Enforcement of Narcotics Team (SSCENT).

Thompson’s attorney Lynn Bremer asked Judge Robert D. Springstead to place her client in the Special Alternative Incarceration (SAI) program, also called “boot camp.”

“If the Michigan Department of Corrections deems he’s eligible for boot camp, I would not oppose that,” said Springstead.

Thompson has three prior felonies and one misdemeanor, which are all drug-related, said Bremer. “He keeps making the same mistake,” she said.

“You’ve pretty much been selling drugs for a living for the last several years,” the judge said.

Sentencing guidelines in the care are 19-38 months.

Thompson received credit for four days served in jail.
