Man sentenced to up to 15 years in prison

DELTA COUNTY — A Kansas man in Delta County’s Circuit Court is facing up to 15 years in prison.

19-year old Timothy Heitz was sentenced earlier today on two counts. One count of caring a concealed weapon and a second for assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. He will be serving both sentences simultaneously and could face up to a total of 15 years.

Heitz was charged back in April when him and another man were found assaulting a man with the rounded end of a hatchet in Escanaba. The victim was taken to the hospital for his injuries.
