“First off, I want to thank the jury for doing their civic duty to serve as jurors. This trial lasted over two weeks. It was a huge sacrifice in their daily lives,” said Prosecutor Jarzynka.

“I also want to thank Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Steve Idema, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Meaghan McKeon and Det./Sgt Bryan Huttenlocker of the Sheriff’s Department for doing an outstanding job in both preparing and presenting the case to the jury, and also I want to thank the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.
