ESCANABA — An Escanaba man was sentenced this week to two to five years in prison for his third drunk driving conviction. The judgment was handed down in Delta County Circuit Court.

Jimi John Micheau, 42, of 400 S. 12th St., Escanaba, was arrested on Oct. 20, 2017 in Escanaba on the following charges: operating a motor vehicle with a high Blood Alcohol Content (BAC), third offense, a five-year felony; possession of the analogue Hydrocodone, a two-year felony; and driving on a suspended license, second or subsequent offense, a one-year misdemeanor.

Following his arrest, he was lodged in the county jail in lieu of $2,000, or 10 percent of a $20,000 bond.

Micheau later pleaded guilty to operating a motor vehicle with a high BAC, third offense, and was sentenced earlier this week to two to five years in prison. He was given credit for serving 79 days in jail. He was ordered to pay $308 in fines and costs.

Micheau also pleaded guilty to driving on a suspended license and was sentenced to 93 days in jail to be served concurrently with the above sentence. He was given credit for serving 79 days and ordered to pay $50 in court fines.

In exchange for the two guilty pleas, the prosecution agreed to dismiss the two-year drug felony.
