Andrea Benet Pena King was sentenced Tuesday in 51st Circuit Court. Pena King of 309 N. Washington received 24-90 months in prison for receiving and concealing stolen property with a value of $1,000-$20,000 and was considered a habitual offender. Judge Susan K. Sniegowski followed a typical plea-and-sentencing aggrement.
Judge Sniegowski was told by Pena King in January that she found, what she believed to be stolen medical supplies from the Animal Hospital of Ludington in her garage and with the help of her daughter transported the items in garbage bag into her home.
Judge Sniegowski said the sentence was excessive due to new guidelines and the fact that Pena King was already on probation, which allowed for the guidelines to be exceeded.
Pena King also received a sentence of 16 months to two years within the Michigan Department of Corrections. Which will be served concurrently for a probation violation.
