Posted: Updated:

PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A southeastern Michigan man who opened fire on other motorists in a series of attacks in October 2012 has been sentenced to more than 6½ years in prison in the first of two related cases.

The Oakland County Circuit Court judge sentenced Raulie Casteel on Tuesday to a term that could last up to 10 years behind bars. The Wixom man pleaded no contest but mentally ill last year to assault and firearms charges.

Casteel was convicted of terrorism last week in a related Livingston County case faces up to life in prison for that charge when he's sentenced next month.

Casteel testified that he shot at vehicles while feeling fear and anxiety. The nearly two-dozen shootings terrified the region for weeks. No one was seriously hurt.
