Raulie Casteel sentenced to 16 to 40 years in prison for terrorism

Posted: Updated:

HOWELL, Mich. (AP) -- A man who shot at about two-dozen vehicles along a Michigan highway corridor has been sentenced to 16 to 40 years in prison for terrorism.

Raulie Casteel is to learn his fate Monday in Livingston County Circuit Court in Howell. The 44-year-old geologist from Wixom already is serving a sentence of more than 6 years in a related case in neighboring Oakland County.

The October 2012 shootings took place along Interstate 96 and connecting roads in four counties. No one was hurt, but the hunt for a gunman dominated headlines for days, persuading travelers to change their habits and even forcing schools to keep children inside at recess.

Casteel told jurors in the terrorism trial that he was consumed with anxiety while in traffic, most likely from undiagnosed delusions.
