Judge goes tough on man with long criminal record

AP Wire • Jul 21, 2015 at 12:44 PM

Livingston County Circuit Judge Michael P. Hatty on Thursday sentenced Nathaniel Wallace to 5 1/2 years to 15 years in prison for larceny from a building. The Grand Rapids man promised that the judge wouldn't see him again if he could avoid prison.

Hatty said he exceeded guidelines of up to 34 months in prison in part due to the "sheer amount" of prior convictions, which included attempted retail fraud and resisting police.

Wallace was convicted in a bench trial of larceny for tricking a Pinckney gas station clerk out of $98 in September 2012.
