28-year-old man to be sentenced for child sex offences including attempted rape of a girl under two Grimsby Telegraph January 19, 2017
A Clare County judge has ordered a Harrison man to spend 25 to 50 years in prison for raping a girl younger than 13.
Circuit Judge Roy Mienk also ordered John Sherman Engel to a lifetime of GPS monitoring, and to pay a $60 DNA fee, $68 state costs, $130 crime victim rights fee, $500 costs, $500 fine and $700 in court-appointed attorney fees.
Mienk credited Engel 370 days for time served between his arrest and sentencing.
Clare County Prosecutor Michelle Ambrozaitis charged Engel, 54, in January 2016 with five counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
A jury on Nov. 29 found Engel guilty of one count, Ambrozaitis said.
“Hopefully...the victim and her family can move forward with the healing process,” Ambrozaitis said after the sentencing, which carried a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years.
Ambrozaitis credited Michigan State Police Lt. Gary Green of the Mt. Pleasant post, the investigating officer, and many others for cooperating and working together to bring justice to the victim.
Others involved in the case were Joyce Seigel, an expert in the field of child sexual abuse; and the other witnesses related to the victim, some of whom traveled from another state in order to testify.
“Without everyone’s cooperation we wouldn’t have been successful,” Ambrozaitis said.
Engel remains in the Clare County Jail, awaiting transfer to the Charles Egeler Reception and Guidance Center at the state prison in Jackson, where male prisoners taken before being placed.
