Prosecutor’s Office Appeals Judge’s Sentencing
Mount Clemens, Michigan — The Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office is appealing a sentence imposed this morning in Macomb County Circuit Court by Judge Richard Caretti in a child abuse case.
In March of 2021, defendant Collin Quint pled no contest to Second Degree Child Abuse for the violent assault he perpetrated upon his 9-week old son. As a result of the abuse, defendant’s son has significant physical and cognitive impairments and consistently fails to meet developmental milestones.
Judge Caretti erred in scoring Michigan’s statutory sentencing guidelines for this case and, ultimately, sentenced defendant to a short jail term. In its continued efforts to fight for justice for all victims of crime in this County, the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office will seek to reverse this ruling in the Michigan Court of Appeals and secure a prison sentence for defendant.
