Townsquare Media

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette announced Monday that convicted I-96 shooter Raulie Casteel has been sentenced to 18-40 years in prison by a Livingston County Circuit Court judge.

Casteel’s sentence wasa result of charges filed by Schuette including charges of terrorism, assault with a dangerous weapon, firing a weapon from a vehicle, carrying a weapon with unlawful intent and three additional felony weapons charges connected to a three-day shooting spree that occurred in October 2012. Schuette said “Raulie Casteel committed calculated acts of violence that terrorized our state, and today the victims of his shooting spree received justice.”

This was the first ever terrorism charge issued by the Michigan Department of Attorney General. Schuette was joined at the announcement by members of the multi-jurisdictional task force that was formed to apprehend Casteel,  as well as two victims of his shooting spree.

From October 6, 2012 to October 18, 2012, Casteel fired shots from his car ar 23 moving vehicles traveling on I-96, M-52, Wixom Rd and Maple Road.
