PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Court of Appeals says a man sent to prison on a stalking charge will get a new trial because he should have been warned about the risks of representing himself.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports (https://bwne.ws/1KwVhgh ) the court this week overturned the conviction of 63-year-old Anthony Lewis McCrory.

According to the opinion, McCrory fired three appointed lawyers and a judge directed the third to assist McCrory in his defense but didn’t give the warning.

McCrory was arrested in November 2011 by police in Marysville t on a charge of aggravated stalking. He lived in the St. Clair County community of Smiths Creek at the time. He was sentenced as a four-time habitual offender in 2012 to three to 25 years in prison.
