ESCANABA - A Gladstone man was sentenced to up to 10 years in prison Tuesday in connection with stealing a vehicle earlier this year. The judgment was handed down in Delta County Circuit Court.
Conrad Thomas Peter Dzanbozoff, 25, was on parole when he was arrested and charged with nine counts related to a stolen vehicle and several vehicle break-ins in Escanaba last April. He pleaded on three of the charges. The remaining counts were dismissed.
Judge Stephen Davis sentenced Dzanbozoff to the following: three to 10 years in prison on one count of unlawfully driving away a motor vehicle; two years and one month to up to five years in prison on one count of attempted breaking and entering a motor vehicle with damage to the vehicle; and two years and one month to up to four years in prison on one count of stealing/receiving a financial transaction device without consent.
Each of the above counts was enhanced by a habitual offender notice. The sentences are to be served concurrently with each other and consecutively with a parole violation sentencing.
Prior to sentencing, Judge Davis gave credit to Dzanbozoff for not blaming others for his actions. The judge also commented that drinking and social anxiety are problems for the defendant.
In addition to the prison terms, Dzanbozoff was ordered to pay $464 in fines and costs.
