HART — A 53-year-old Montague man with 10 felony convictions and 15 misdemeanors was sentenced this week in 27th Circuit Court to 15 months to four years in prison for probation violation.

Jasen Lee Tyler, of 8518 Robinhood Dr., violated his probation by using drugs, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon. Tyler was convicted of delivery/manufacture of marijuana Jan. 29, 2018 and was ordered to serve to six months in jail and two years probation.

Judge Robert D. Springstead noted Tyler’s nine prior felonies and 15 misdemeanors during his 2018 sentencing.

Tyler’s conviction was the result of growing medical marijuana in excess of the amount allowed by law, said Bizon.

Tyler was sentenced to three previous prison terms in Muskegon County, including a three to 10 year term in 1990 for a breaking and entering conviction; two to five years in 1986 for breaking and entering; and two to five years in 1986 for larceny, according to the Offender Tracking Information System (OTIS).

Most of his other convictions occurred out of state, Bizon said.

During his sentencing this week, he received credit for 183 days served in jail. His probation was revoked.

Tyler violated his probation twice, according to his court file and was ordered to 183 days in jail with credit for 183 days served for a violation that occurred July 20. The prison term was ordered for a Nov. 5 violation.
