A Muskegon man apologized for barging into a Ferrysburg home uninvited, an incident that resulted in an altercation when he was asked to leave, his attorney said.

Dontrale Marcellus Hudson, 28, promised Ottawa County Judge Karen Miedema on Monday that she would never see him again.

“I’m very sorry,” Hudson said. “I learned my lesson.”

“He would like to take his responsibilities for this case and move on,” added defense attorney Michael Zitta.

On Jan. 31, Hudson pleaded no contest to a charge of third-degree home invasion. In exchange, a charge of first-degree home invasion was dismissed.

Zitta said his client went to a social gathering at the Ferrysburg home to talk to one of the residents. He had not been invited to the event and there was a physical confrontation when Hudson was told to leave.

On Monday, Miedema ordered Hudson to serve 300 days in jail, with credit for 137 days already served. He was also ordered to pay a $250 fine and have no contact with the victims.

Zitta said his client has a prior home invasion conviction in Muskegon County.
