|Ackerman, Otsego County mugshot|
Charged last May with two counts of third degree criminal sexual conduct, three counts of fourth degree criminal sexual conduct as well as one count of furnishing alcohol to a minor, Ackerman's violent criminal history stretches back to 2002.
Miss Fortune has discovered that Ackerman was charged in Wayne County on April 16, 2002 with assault with intent to do great bodily harm/less than murder and a probation violation. Ackerman pled nolo contendere (no contest) to the assault on September 31, 2002 and was sentenced to two years probation. In addition, Ackerman served 63 days in Wayne County jail for the probation violation.
After a three-day jury trial in 2003, Ackerman was found guilty in Oakland County of felonious assault (assault with a deadly weapon). Sentenced to a term in the Michigan corrections system of one to four years, Ackerman was ordered to pay his victim $35,124.46 in restitution. (The Michigan Legislature requires the MDOC to keep offender information on OTIS for only three years after the offender has discharged from MDOC supervision, so I was unable to confirm the actual time Ackerman served.)
On May 7, 2010, Ackerman was charged with misdemeanor assault in Pima County, Arizona. The charge was later dismissed by the Marana City Attorney.
And that brings up back to Gaylord, Michigan.
How do you suppose Ingersoll and Ackerman got together? Over a game of chess?
UPDATE: August 1, 2016-An Otsego County jury found Ackerman not guilty on all six counts.
