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 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.
