A Coopersville man who escaped from an Ottawa County deputy's car and evaded police for three days earlier this summer pleaded guilty to all of the related charges on Monday in Ottawa County Circuit Court. Jordan Michael Mulder, 20, agreed to plead guilty in exchange for the Ottawa County prosecutor's office not file additional charges, according to court files. Sentencing was set for Aug. 19 at 9:30 a.m. Mulder remains in jail with bond set at $10,000 on each of the five charges.
