HART — A 31-year-old Fremont man was ordered to serve five months up front of an 11-month discretionary jail sentence for possession of less than 25 grams of cocaine in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Oct. 12.

Jordan James Miller and his attorney, Julie Springstead Waltz, both said that he is “changing his life around.”

“I’m taking this matter seriously,” Miller said to Judge Anthony A. Monton.

Monton, who noted that Miller is age 31, said, “It’s late, but it’s not too late” to change his life. “It sounds like you’re willing to change.”

Sentencing guidelines for the conviction are 0-11 months.

Miller was also ordered to 18 months probation; no alcohol/drugs/must submit to testing; and his driver’s license is suspended for six months/restricted after 30 days.

He received credit for 91 days served in jail.
