HART — A 31-year-old Muskegon man was sentenced in 27th Circuit Court Monday, July 13, to 23 months to five years in prison for probation violation.

Keith James Mueller, of 2346 Lincoln Park Dr., was on probation for a felony conviction of larceny by conversion $1,000-$20,000. He still owes over $15,000 in restitution from that case, according to court records. He was found guilty of the larceny charge Aug. 27, 2018 and was sentenced to one year in jail.

Mueller was working on a moving crew for an antique dealer and stole items, said Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon previously.

Mueller was recently convicted of probation violation for not reporting to his probation officer, Bizon said. He also faces charges in Muskegon County.

Mueller has a long juvenile record as well as a lengthy adult record, which includes 18 misdemeanors and three felony convictions by the age of 29, Judge Robert D. Springstead said previously.

According to the Offender Tracking Information System, he has served previous prison terms for receiving and concealing a motor vehicle and cocaine possession.

He received credit for 392 days served in jail. His probation was revoked.

Mueller appeared in court Monday via Zoom video conferencing due to COVID-19 precautions.
