SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) - A former food supervisor who worked at a Michigan prison will serve two years to five years for trying to have an inmate assaulted.

The Michigan Attorney General’s office says 27-year-old Michael Young of Kincheloe was sentenced Thursday in Sault Ste. Marie.

He was convicted in December of solicitation to commit assault with intent to cause great bodily harm.

Young was working for a private company, Aramark, at an Upper Peninsula prison in 2014 when he asked an inmate to find another inmate to commit an assault at a different prison. Investigators have said Young was targeting someone who was involved in the death of a family member.

The attorney general’s office says Young had offered tobacco products as payment for the assault.
