STANTON — The owner of a condemned Edmore mobile home park was sentenced to one year in jail Thursday after slapping his wife and breaking her cell phone in front of their three children.
Corey Davy, 40, previously pleaded guilty to interfering with electronic communication, a felony. A domestic violence charge was dismissed in exchange for his plea.
The charges stem from a Sept. 23 incident in Home Township. Davy was on parole at the time of the offense.
Davy’s wife, Amber, begged 8th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Suzanne Hoseth Kreeger not to send her husband to jail Thursday.
“Corey is a very good person, really, but when he is not on his meds he gets angry really quick,” Amber Davy said tearfully. “I’m not angry at him anymore. I still love him. He’s been really good to me and my kids.”
Davy’s attorney, Ryan Cade Villet, said his client suffers from learning disabilities and mental health issues.
“Historically, he’s been stuck on the bottom rung of society,” Villet said. “He’s in a situation that he can’t get out of.”
Davy declined to make a statement. Kreeger noted Davy recently gave another inmate his own medications while incarcerated in the Montcalm County Jail.
“That irritates me,” the judge said. “You’re not getting the message that you’ve got to take your medication.”
Kreeger sentenced Davy to one year in jail.
Davy is the owner of Edmore Estates on M-46 in Home Township. He purchased the foreclosed mobile home park in 2008.
He went to prison in October 2009 for operating while intoxicated third offense. He was paroled in January 2011 to several hospitals and rehabilitation facilities.
The mobile home park remains full of trash and demolished trailers today.
