Coloma Priest Sentenced For Attack On Teenage Boy

A Coloma priest will spend 58 days in jail, be on probation for five years, and has to register as a sex offender for 15 years for an assault on a teenage boy in 2013 at St. Margaret’s Church in Otsego. That’s the sentence for 57-year-old Brian Stanley, who pleaded guilty to one count of attempted false imprisonment in November. Stanley wrapped the boy in plastic wrap, covered his eyes and mouth with tape, and left him alone in a janitor’s closet against his will. Attorney General Dana Nessel said in a statement Stanley “took advantage of a vulnerable victim, and today he is being held accountable.” Stanley was sentenced to 60 days in the Allegan County Jail, but received credit for two days already served, hence the 58 days he’ll spend behind bars.
