SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - A Saginaw man on parole after serving prison time is the lone Republican candidate in the November election for a state house seat serving the area.
Jordan D. Haskins tells The Saginaw News (http://bit.ly/1qigSB6 ) that he knows his criminal record works against him, but he says his life has changed.
The 24-year-old's cases include trespassing on private and public property in four cases from April 2010 to January 2011, when he was sent to prison. As part of the break-ins, he damaged vehicles as a way to facilitate what he told police was a sexual fetish.
The Democrat who currently holds the 95th District House seat that Haskins is seeking is running for state Senate. Haskins will face the Democrat who wins a primary in August.
