A former teacher and high school basketball coach at the Portage Public Schools has now been sentenced to probation for misconduct with a student.
Cory McNeal appeared in Kalamazoo County Court Wednesday, and was sentenced to two years after pleading guilty to felonious assault.
The 26-year-old had been wanted in Jackson County, and was believed to have been in Kalamazoo County’s Comstock Township Tuesday afternoon. He was first tracked down to the 5000 block of Savannah Ave, but evaded capture and allegedly broke into three homes in that area, stealing various items, before stealing a car and speeding off.
The blaze started at 7am Sunday at the home in the 800 block of Lake St, where fireworks began exploding on the front porch. The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety says that they had to take a defensive strategy and that they couldn’t enter the residence due to the flames
The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office says that around 2pm Saturday, a woman had been jogging along E. MN Ave. near S 31st St. in Comstock, when a vehicle parked on the side of the road a little ahead of her; as she approached, a male suspect got out and began chasing after her.
The lawsuit was filed in December 2016 by a former employee of the Loy Norrix High School, and claims that Principal Rodney Prewitt made unwanted sexual advances towards her and other employees. The lawsuit says that when the employee rebuffed Prewitt’s advances, she was denied a new position in the district that she had been vying for.
The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office says that since August, they have received complaints from several senior living facilities that a woman has been calling their residents, claiming to be a representative from the bank’s fraud department.
According to his family, 34-year-old Jesse Albrecht died Wednesday; he had been riding an ATV on October 6 in the Houghton Lake Area, when he crashed into a tree head-on. He had been wearing a helmet, but still suffered severe and ultimately fatal injuries.
The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office says search warrants were executed Tuesday at three locations in the county, and at one home in Portage. At one home in Battle Creek, no dogs were found, but over a pound a marijuana was, so a 31-year-old man was arrested on drug charges.
