Teen sentenced in two cases

A Sturgis teenager was sentenced to two years of probation and one year of jail for attempted third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Court officials said Dwight Summey, 19, was sentenced recently by St. Joseph County Circuit Court Judge Paul Stutesman. Summey was given the same sentence for breaking into Glen Oaks Community College.

Summey faced life felonies for safe breaking and first-degree criminal sexual conduct, but was given the plea bargain based on facts and details of his case.

Initially, Summey was charged as a juvenile because he was 17-years old when he broke into the college in December 2019.  He was 17 when he was with a 14-year-old girl in November 2020.

Stutesman also ordered Summey to complete the Twin County rehabilitation program, requiring him to maintain employment. He also must complete at least a GED.
