Booze and Boats Don't Mix - Example of Aftermath - Grant Czuj and Judges Wrath

A Livingston County Circuit Court judge was unsympathetic toward a Hamburg Township man he sentenced to prison for a July 2005 fatal boating accident on Zukey Lake, saying he was not the victim, but the perpetrator.

Judge David Reader sentenced Grant William Czuj to a minimum of eight years, three months and a maximum of 15 years in prison for operating a vessel while under the influence of alcohol causing the death of Michael John LaFave, of Brighton Town-ship, and causing a crippling injury to Sarah Ribas of Howell.

This Judge wanted the defendant to take responsibility for his actions. He did not accept that Czuj was in any way a victim but was in the wrong. His sentence reflects this.
