UPDATE: Sault Ste. Marie Man to be Sentenced for Illegal Explosives

Posted: Updated:

The man who illegally transported and stored explosives in the upper peninsula learns his sentence today.

John Lechner, a farmer and builder from Sault Ste. Marie, was convicted in June.

He'll be back in federal court in Marquette today.

Lechner was recorded telling someone he'd become a mercenary when the people decide to take the government back.

His co-defendant, Ken Kassab of Brimley, was acquitted of the charges against him.
