A 24-year-old McDonald's restaurant employee has reached a deal with Michigan prosecutors to a case that accuses him of spitting into a police officer's sandwich.
Dalton Ursulean of Niagara, Wis., pleaded no contest Tuesday in Dickinson County District Court to placing harmful objects in food.
In exchange, prosecutors agreed to mitigate his status as a habitual offender. A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but allows for conviction and sentencing.
On Aug. 25, authorities say Ursulean spit in a sandwich ordered by an officer from the Oscar Johnson VA Medical Center in Iron Mountain.
The Daily News reports that Assistant Prosecutor Carl Downing says it's likely Ursulean's recommended sentence will be about a year in jail followed by about a year's probation. Sentencing is Nov. 5.
