New trial date set for previously convicted man

MARQUETTE — A new trial date has been scheduled for a man previously convicted of false imprisonment and torture.

A five day trial is scheduled to begin on September 19th for 45–year-old Jason Sadowski in Marquette County Circuit Court. Sadowski was convicted last year of one count of solicitation of murder, two counts of torture, two counts of false imprisonment, and two counts of assault by strangulation. Sadowski was arrested in 2013 for kidnapping and torturing two women inside of a karate dojo in Ishpeming.

Last year the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled in favor of Sadowski after he challenged that his confrontation rights were violated during the original trial.

Sadowski is currently serving a 40 to 80 year prison sentence.
