MARQUETTE COUNTY — Brandon Lee Schiefel was sentenced Thursday morning in Marquette County Circuit Court for crimes involving a drive-by shooting in Ishpeming during late 2018.
Schiefel was arrested in Ishpeming on a 12-count warrant on September 6th, 2018, at approximately 2:00 P.M.
His charges include assault with intent to murder, discharging a firearm at a building, discharging a firearm from a vehicle, among others.
Schiefel has also been accused of threatening multiple individuals who were involved with the crime.
Michael Paul Fletcher Jr. was one of the individuals who were held at gunpoint during the crime, and testified during the preliminary hearing.
“I would like to say that I am very remorseful for what I did,” said Brandon Lee Schiefel. “I think about it every day while I am in jail. There is a lot that I have thought about. You know, Tracey is a good guy and did take care of me, and what happened was a very unfortunate misunderstanding. I wish it never would have happened, and that I could go back and change it, but obviously I can’t. I am ready to accept whatever is dealt to me today.”
Schiefel’s conviction and sentence were a result of a plea with 5 years at the minimum, and up to 10 years maximum in jail.
The 224 days already served to date will be credited to Schiefel as well.
