Ishpeming Kidnap Case Reaches Verdict

Both of the Ishpeming men on trial for kidnapping and torturing two women have been convicted. Yesterday, 44-year-old Jason Sadowski was found guilty on seven of the eight charges he was facing which include solicitation of murder, two counts of torture, two counts of unlawful imprisonment and two counts of assault by strangulation. He was acquitted of a first-degree criminal sexual conduct charge. 66-year-old Charles Cope was convicted of all four counts against him, which were two counts of torture and two counts of unlawful imprisonment. Their jury returned with the verdict shortly before 9:30 last night after more than eight hours of deliberation. Sadowski and Cope were accused of kidnapping two women and duct-taping them to support posts in the basement of Sadowski’s mixed martial arts gym in Ishpeming last summer. There’s no word yet about a sentencing date but both men are looking at facing life in prison.
