Markham conviction upheld in Appeals Court
LANSING, MI-- The Michigan Court of Appeals has affirmed the conviction of a Manistique man convicted of extortion and making a threat of terrorism.
Peter Markham, 65, was sentenced to eight concurrent sentences of 75 months to 20 years in prison for threatening officials with murder, suicide, and arson over a
$46r fee on his water bill last year. He was also given 45 months to 20 years for using a computer to commit a threat of terrorism.
The appeals court in Lansing this week upheld Markham’s conviction, saying most of his arguments did not have merit.
