Man gets 3 days in jail over juror questionnaire

Posted: Updated:
BAY CITY, MI (AP) -

A Bay City man who wrote profanity and insults on a juror qualification questionnaire has been sentenced to three days in jail.

Bay County Circuit Judge Joseph Sheeran issued the sentence Monday for 36-year-old Erick Haubenstricker, who pleaded guilty last month to criminal contempt.

Court records show that he signed and returned a juror questionnaire form June 30 with the word "pigs" and profanities written in several places.

Haubenstricker says he's sorry for the "rant" he put on paper.

Sheeran says Haubenstricker has a felony conviction from about 10 years ago that could have spared him a stint as a juror anyway.
