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.
