CADILLAC — A 26-year-old Cadillac woman is facing two vehicle-related offenses after she arraigned recently in 84th District Court.

Brittany Ann Bakke was charged with one count each of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and operating while license suspended, revoked or denied second or subsequent offense for her connection with an incident on or about April 6 in Boon Township. A habitual offender second offense notice also was added to the charges which carries a penalty of 1.5 times the maximum sentence on the primary offense.

If convicted, she faces three years in prison or $2,250 in fines.

The charges are merely accusations and not evidence of guilt. Bakke is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. The prosecution has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

A $1,500 cash or surety bond was issued and a probable cause conference was scheduled for 10 a.m. on June 11.
