    Kincheloe, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed a felony charge against a former Aramark supervisor employed at Kinross Correctional Facility for allegedly soliciting an inmate to help orchestrate the assault of another inmate.

    27-year-old Michael Young of Kincheloe was charged yesterday with one count of Solicitation to Commit Assault with Intent to Cause Great Bodily Harm, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.

    The case was referred to the AG by the Chippewa County Prosecutor and State Police.

    Schuette says Young was employed by Aramark at the Kinross facility.

    In 2014, a Kinross inmate allegedly reported to the Department of Corrections that he was solicited by Young to find an inmate to assault another inmate incarcerated at a different correctional facility.

    Young was arrested yesterday in Kincheloe and will be arraigned today.

    He is currently being held in the Chippewa County jail.
