The Mason County Press reports that a 33-year-old Ludington male is sentenced to the Mason County jail for attempted criminal sexual conduct.
Chad Heitz was sentenced to 1 year and 9 months on third degree sexual conduct with a 15-year-old female relative. The Ludington Police arrested Heitz in May for the crime. Prosecutor Paul Spaniola and Judge Richard Cooper expressed concern for the girl's well being because the blame was placed on her by the family. Heitz was also arrested last month in Scottville for driving while intoxicated. That case is still pending.
