BERRIEN COUNTY A Berrien County judge is sending a man that he calls a "poster boy for parole failure" back to jail.

The Herald Palladium reports that 24-year-old Michael Thompson is going back to jail for up to 4 years for stealing games and other items from his girlfriend's mother's home, while he was on parole for a previous theft.

Parole violators aren't typically sent back to prison, but the judge made an exception because of numerous previous offenses.
