Youngs to be sentenced today in Osceola County Circuit Court

REED CITY — Former Osceola County Road Commission manager Cliff Youngs will be sentenced at 9:15 a.m. today in Osceola County’s 49th Circuit Court.

Youngs was found guilty in March on one count of perjury, a charge brought after he allegedly lied under oath during a sworn interview with Michigan State Police Det. Troy Fellows in March 2012. Youngs was interviewed by detectives investigating claims that he had altered time cards for road commission jobs to retain extra funds from project grants, including a FEMA grant given to the county in 2009 to clean up tornado damage.

Youngs has been free on bond since the verdict was issued.
