LANSING, Mich. (WLUC) - The Michigan Court of Appeals recently released it's decision in an appeal by a man originally sentenced in Schoolcraft County Circuit Court.

The appeal, entered by Kenneth Daniel Brunke on Feb. 28, 2017, was in relation to his plea-based convictions of obstruction of justice, and making false of misleading statements during a violent crime investigation (lying to a police officer). Brunke was sentenced to 40 to 60 months in prison for the obstruction of justice conviction and 32 to 48 months in prison for the lying to a police officer conviction.

In the appeal, Brunke challenged his sentences and his ordered restitution of $2,001.00.
