ALLEGAN, MI (WHTC) - The scales of justice continue to fall upon four Allegan County persons involved in an interstate flight, although in one case, it will be delayed. Lauralee Grauman, one of two women who allegedly helped their boyfriends flee from a Michigan corrections program last fall, was scheduled to before a judge on Monday for sentencing on breaking into a Dorr home and helping to steal a car there. That sentencing has been postponed due to illness by presiding judge Kevin Cronin, according to officials of Allegan County Circuit Court, with no new date immedately scheduled.
Grauman and Brittany Rector pleaded guilty in a deal with prosecutors that had other charges against them dropped. They accompanied Grauman’s cousin Kenneth, along with Gregory Bradshaw, in committing similar crimes while going west before being caught at a Colorado motel room with meth-making materials. All four pleaded guilty to charges in that state, with the men serving 18-year sentences that would preclude them from being extradited back to Michigan, while the women were released in plea deals. Lauralee Grauman could still get up to 10 years in prison; Rector's sentencing on similar charges by Judge Cronin is still set for June 24th.
