Man sentenced in weapons possession case

ONTONAGON — A Bergland man is no longer in jail after receiving his sentence today in Ontonagon County Circuit Court.

Thirty-three year old Donald Sylvester was given credit for time served. Sylvester was arrested by the Ontonagon County Sheriff’s Office last September on charges of assaulting a police officer and weapons possession by a felon.

Sylvester pleaded guilty to the weapons possession charge last month. He did receive 24 months probation as part of his sentence.
