      Haskins sentenced

      Ninety days in jail and two years probation for a Gwinn man convicted of possessing child pornography.

      Thirty-one-year-old Michael Haskins of was sentenced in Marquette County Circuit Court this morning. He pled guilty to two felony counts in August of having child sexually abusive material and using a computer to commit a crime.

      Haskins' attorney had asked the judge for therapy instead of jail.

      Judge Thomas Solka said, "We have to consider the protection of the community and the sanction for punishment of the crime and your conduct and prevent others from engaging in that conduct."

      As part of his probation agreement, Haskins must register as a Michigan sex offender for the next 25 years, and is not allowed contact with anyone age 17 and under, except for his children and stepchildren.

      He must also complete treatment.
