A Ravenna Township man will be spending six years in prison for the shooting of another man in the leg after holding him prisoner in April.

Crist was allegedly high on bath salts during the shooting of Charles E. Sandli, 32, on April 12. Sandli escaped after soon after being shot.
Three children were removed from the house on S.R. 59 where the incident took place. They were not home during the shooting.
