AG Nessel Prevails with Stay on Jarvi Parole Order

LANSING – The Livingston County Circuit Court sided with Attorney General Dana Nessel in a stay of enforcement for the parole order involving Floyd Jarvi and granted leave to appeal. 

"We are grateful that Judge Geddis acted quickly in the interest of public safety,” Nessel said. “The facts of this case demonstrate that Jarvi has failed to accept responsibility for his crimes and lacks remorse, and as such should remain in custody. We look forward to presenting the facts of the case before the circuit court.” 

Jarvi pled no contest in 1994 on multiple counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, armed robbery, and felony-firearm.  He became eligible for parole in 2014.  Jarvi was sentenced to 23 to 60 years in prison. 

A date has not yet been set for the appeal.
