UPDATE: Man Sentenced for Multiple Northern Michigan Crimes

Posted: Updated:

The man accused of joyriding and starting two fires in one northern Michigan community will spend several years behind bars.

A judge sentenced Marshall Brault on Tuesday for joyriding and crashing into the wishing well in a stolen truck in Pentwater.

He was also sentenced for two other crimes in Ludington where he set an unoccupied home and a garage on fire.

The judge sentenced him to 5 to 15 years in prison for all three crimes and a probation violation.

The second suspect in crash and grab involving a stolen truck is now back in Oceana County.

Marshall Brault had been in the Mason County Jail for a probation violation.

Police say he and Travis Malone used a truck to crash into the Wishing Well in Pentwater late last month.

Malone pleaded guilty to the break-in yesterday, but has not yet been sentenced.

Ludington Police say the pair are also considered persons of interest in two fires in their community earlier this month.
