Lachine man gets 12 months for drunken scuffle with deputies

A Lachine man with a lengthy criminal history is back in jail for a drunken scuffle with two deputies from the Alpena County Sheriff’s Office.

Robert Charles Gierszewski, 54, was sentenced to 12 months in jail this week, on two counts of assaulting or resisting a police officer.

Gierszewski was combative with two deputies in March, and needed to be restrained while being booked into the jail.  He claims he was too intoxicated to remember the incidents.

At his sentencing hearing this week, Gierszewski asked the court to place him on a tether rather than put him in jail so he could help take care of his ailing mother.  But assistant prosecutor Cynthia Muszynski reminded the court that Gierszewski has 12 felonies and 30 misdemeanors on his record, and has been in prison six times.

Gierszewski is currently on parole after most recently serving time in prison on a third drunk driving conviction.
