During his appearance Tuesday in Menominee County Circuit Court, Strickland was sentenced to from two years and four months to up to seven years and six months in prison on the six counts. They will be served concurrently. he was given credit for 400 days already served in jail.

Strickland was sentenced for being a habitual offender, second notice. he was also ordered to pay $1,213 in fines and costs.

In addition to the stolen property charge and the firearms charge, Strickland was originally charged in September with four counts of breaking and entering. these four charges were later dismissed on Feb. 24 in exchange for pleas on four lesser courts of attempted breaking and entering.

Following previous trial date postponements last year and this year, Strickland was scheduled to be tried on April 27 but opted for the plea agreement in February.
