UM fraternity member pleads in resort vandalism
Gaylord — Another member of a now-closed University of Michigan fraternity has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge connected to vandalism at a ski resort.
The Michigan Daily and TV stations WPBN and WWTV report 22-year-old Jesse Krumholz faces sentencing Sept. 17 after entering the plea earlier this month to malicious destruction of a building.
Doors, furniture, fixtures and carpet were badly damaged at Treetops Resort in Dover Township and Boyne Highlands near Petoskey. Both resorts are in northern Michigan.
Treetops estimated $430,000 in costs from the Jan. 17-18 vandalism. Two other Sigma Alpha Mu members face misdemeanor charges of letting minors use drugs and alcohol. They’re due in court Aug. 13. Another pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor of malicious destruction of a building.
Investigators are trying to track down others involved.
