HART — An 18-year-old Shelby man on probation for a conviction of receiving and concealing firearms pleaded guilty Monday, July 31, to a felony of a tampering with an electronic monitoring device in 27th Circuit Court.

Logan Nathaniel Duvall, of 84 Ellis St., was arrested by the Oceana County Sheriff’s June 22 for a felony of tampering with an electronic monitoring device and second-offense habitual offender.

Duvall testified Monday that he cut off his tether with scissors, June 8, in the Village of Shelby.

In exchange for his guilty plea, his second-offense habitual offender designation was dismissed. The plea agreement calls for a maximum sentence of six months in jail. Duvall testified that he was on probation for receiving and concealing firearms.

“I cut it off with scissors,” he told Judge Robert D. Springstead. “I wasn’t in my right mind. I wasn’t thinking straight.” After cutting off the tether, he “hung out with friends,” he told the judge.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 25 at 9:30 a.m.
