retrial

MARQUETTE, MI--   An Ishpeming man retried for torturing two women at his mixed martial arts studio has been found not guilty on all charges. 

The Michigan Court of Appeals granted Jason Sadowski, 47, a new trial after his co-defendant made comments that implicated him at the first trial, but Sadowski couldn’t challenge the statements because the co-defendant didn’t testify.

Sadowski was exonerated Friday on seven charges, including torture, solicitation of murder, unlawful imprisonment, and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
