STANTON, Mich. (AP) -- A Michigan man convicted in a sulfuric acid bomb attack on a man dating his ex-girlfriend has been sentenced to 27 to 50 years in prison.
A Montcalm County judge Thursday exceeded a sentencing recommendation that called for a maximum term of nearly 19 years. A jury in March convicted Steven Stewart of possession or use of a harmful device causing injury in the Sept. 11, 2008 attack.
Stewart declined to make a statement in court. His lawyer has said an appeal of the conviction was planned.
The explosion injured a man in Eureka Township, about 25 miles northeast of Grand Rapids. The man was dating Stewart's ex-girlfriend at the time. Authorities say Stewart placed the explosive near the man's truck, and the man was maimed and temporarily blinded.
