Man receives probation sentence in property damage case

MARQUETTE — A Marquette man arrested on multiple felony counts received his sentence Friday morning in Marquette County Circuit Court.

Jay Oberg, 19, received two years probation under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act (HYTA) on the felony charge of malicious destruction of property more than $1,000 but less than $20,000. He also sentenced to 24 days in jail with credit for time served on a misdemeanor count of malicious destruction of property.

Oberg and two other men were arrested in April for shooting out car windows in North Marquette and Marquette Township with a pneumatic gun. Oberg entered a plea agreement in July.

In addition to probation, Oberg will pay at least $3,982.51 in restitution. The final amount will be determined at a later court hearing.
