HABITUAL BATTERER SENTENCED TO FEDERAL PRISON
MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN – Bradley Joseph Hase, 43, of Marquette, Michigan, was sentenced to the statutory maximum of 60 months in federal prison for domestic assault by an habitual offender, U.S. Attorney Patrick A. Miles, Jr. announced today. In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Judge Robert Holmes Bell ordered Hase to serve three years of supervised release following his release from prison, and to pay a $100 special assessment.
On November 6, 2013, Hase pleaded guilty to count two of a federal indictment charging him with domestic assault by an habitual offender. The assault charge arose from an incident at a residence in Marquette County, Michigan, on Keweenaw Bay Indian Community reservation land on February 3, 2013. During this incident, Hase, a non-Indian, assaulted his girlfriend, a member of the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community, grabbing her by the face and throat and pulling out her hair. Hase had been convicted twice of domestic violence offenses in the 96th District Court, Marquette County, and was on probation for one of those offenses at the time of the assault in this case.
The Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Tribal Police, the Chocolay Township Police Department and the FBI investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul D. Lochner prosecuted the case..
