CADILLAC — A 33-year-old Marion man is facing up to life in prison for his connection with an incident involving stolen property after he was charged recently in 84th District Court.

Joshua Leonard Snider was charged with one count of receiving and concealing stolen property valued at $1,000 or more but less than $20,000 including items such as a snowmobile, chainsaw, a 90cc ATV, and a hunting jacket for his connection with an incident occurring on or between the dates of Dec. 8-Dec. 12 in Clam Lake Township.

A habitual offender fourth offense notice was added to the charge which carries a maximum penalty of up to life in prison if the primary offense is punishable by up to five years in prison or 15 years in prison if the primary offense is punishable by under five years in prison.

If convicted, Snider faces up to life in prison.

The charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt. Snider is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. The prosecution has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

A $25,000 cash or surety bond was issued and a probable cause conference was scheduled for 10 a.m. on June 11.
