NILES - Robbing someone over a drug deal gone bad and, weeks later, wrestling with a policeman, have landed a young Niles man back in prison.

Phillip Hockaday, 23, of Cass Street went to prison in 2009 for third-degree home invasion and is going back after being sentenced Monday in Berrien County Trial Court for attempted assault with intent to rob while unarmed and resisting and obstructing a police officer.

    Well said Judge. More judges with this attitude and the courage to make statements like the ones made here, would translate to fewer repeat offenders. It may also put some bite back in the judicial system.
