Former Tribal Boxing Commissioner Sentenced to Probation

A judge sentenced a former Tribal Boxing Commissioner to probation for demanding money from a promoter at the Little River Casino and Resort. Police say Shane Crampton demanded $1,000 from the boxing promoter for favorable treatment. The Grand Rapids Press reports Crampton apologized in court Wednesday saying he embarrassed his tribe. They say an extortion charge was dropped as part of a plea agreement. Crampton must also pay nearly $2,100 in fines.
