I-96 Shooter Convicted on Multiple Charges Including Terrorism

Townsquare Media

A Livingston County jury found the man responsible for a three-day shooting spree in October 2012 guilty of multiple charges including terrorism.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette made the announcement that 44-year-old Raulie Casteel of Wixom was found guilty of terrorism, assault with a dangerous weapon, firing a weapon from a vehicle and three other felony weapons charges in the I-96 shooting spree. The terrorism conviction is the first in state history secured by the Attorney General. The Criminal Division had filed the charges against Casteel based on evidence collected by a multi-jurisdictional task force formed to investigate the case.

In a statement Schuette said “Raulie Casteel committed acts of violence that terrorized our state in unimaginable ways” and that school bus routes were changed, commuters took back roads and avoided I-96, and sports fans also “feared traveling to weekend games.”

Casteel was charged with Domestic Terrorism based on 23 attacks during the three-day time-frame. The charge is punishable by up to life in prison. Casteel is next due in Livingston County Circuit Court for sentencing on March 3, 2014.
