Man ordered to jail for accosting child.


By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

HART — A 25-year-old Hesperia man was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Oct. 22, to 101 days in jail with credit for 101 days served and five years probation for a felony conviction of accosting a child for immoral purposes.

Monte Lee Dupont, of 65 S. Winter St., pleaded guilty last August.

Dupont was sending electronic messages to a 14-year-old girl, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.

“This is a young man who made a mistake,” said his attorney Terry Shaw.

Sentencing guidelines in the case are zero to six months.

“The victim expressed extreme reluctance to participate in his prosecution,” Bizon previously stated. As part of his probation, Dupont will be required to have no contact with children 17 years of age and younger.
