An Alpena man will be sentenced in March for making sexual advances on a woman at the Ripley Trailer Park.

Steven James Szumila, 53, recently pleaded no contest to a single count of 4th degree criminal sexual conduct by force or coercion.

According to a report by the Michigan State Police, Szumila was drinking alcohol with the victim on November 2, 2017, when he told the woman he was going to have sex with her.  The victim said no and a tussle ensued.  The woman was scratched on the neck during the incident but was able to hold off her attacker.

Szumila entered a no contest plea because he claims to have no recollection of the incident due to his level of intoxication.  As part of a settlement agreement, he is expected to receive no more than 90 days in jail.

Sentencing is scheduled for March 19.
