Presley Sentenced to 3-40 Years


 Clare County Prosecutor release

Robert Joseph Presley Jr. plead guilty on April 26, 2022, to Assault with Intent to do great bodily harm less than murder as a habitual 3rd offender. This plea ended a case that began in June 2018. The case was delayed through changes in defense counsel, many filed and argued motions, and then the COVID shutdowns.

On Dec. 20, 2022, Judge Roy Mienk sentenced the defendant to prison. He is ordered to serve 40 months (approximately three years) to 20 years with credit for 404 days already served. He was also ordered to pay a total of $1,898 in assorted fines and costs. This sentence will run concurrent with a sentence he is currently serving on another matter.
