ALLEGAN, Mich. (WOOD) - One of four people who prompted a multi-state manhunt last year has been sentenced for crimes committed in Michigan.
Lauralee Grauman was sentenced in Allegan County Thursday to 250 days in jail with credit for 250 days served and 36 months probation for auto theft.
She was also sentenced to 11 months in jail with credit for 250 days and 36 months probation for breaking and entering.
In March, Grauman pleaded guilty to breaking and entering and unlawful driving away of an automobile connected to a meth-fueled October 2012 run from the law with her boyfriend, cousin and 17-year-old girl.
Gregory Bradshaw, Kenneth Grauman II and their respective girlfriends, Lauralee Grauman and Brittany Rector, were arrested Oct. 11, 2012 at a Canon City, Colo. motel in which a methamphetamine lab was found.
The four had been fleeing authorities since the two men escaped the Lake County Residential ReEntry Facility in Baldwin, Mich. on Sept. 29, 2012. The men picked up their girlfriends in Allegan County and proceeded to allegedly steal several vehicles and commit several crimes en route to Colorado.
Lauralee Grauman pleaded guilty in November 2012 to one count of felony theft by receiving in Colorado, according to the Canon City Daily Record. As part of a plea deal, Grauman agreed to testify against her co-defendants, and the district attorney's office agreed to allow her two-year probation to be transferred to Michigan.
After returning to Michigan, Brittany Rector was charged for her part in the crime spree as well as unrelated meth charges. She pleaded guilty to several charges in April.
Bradshaw and Kenneth Grauman remain in Colorado, where they are serving 18 years after pleading guilty to burglary of a dwelling.
