Man pleads guilty to assault, home invasion

Baker faces up to 20 years in prison

MANISTIQUE – A Manistique man pled guilty to three felony charges in 11th Judicial Circuit Court on Thursday. He had faced charges in two separate cases, the most recent an alleged assault on Aug. 28.

Gordon Daniel Baker II, 35, was arrested on Aug. 28 following an incident at 226 Range St. He faced three charges: first degree home invasion; assault with intent to commit murder; and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.

Baker pled guilty to the assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder; home invasion, second degree; and breaking and entering. The remainder of the charges in both cases were dismissed.

Baker is considered a habitual offender, fourth offense, which will be applied, and may increase any prison time, to the three charges.

Baker will appear in circuit court for sentencing on Nov. 7 at 10 a.m. He remains lodged at the Schoolcraft County Jail.
