Hartland Man Sentenced For Lawn Equipment Theft

7/11/14 - A Hartland Township with a lengthy criminal record man has been sentenced to jail for stealing equipment from a landscaping business. 33-year-old Phillip Scott Rappette was ordered to spend one year in the Livingston County Jail following his plea to larceny charges after he took a weed whacker, gas cans and several other items in April from his former employer, Horizon Landscape, on Hibner Road in Hartland Township. Rappette has seven prior felony convictions including a breaking and entering count from a 2011 break-in at the non-profit VINA Community Dental Center in Brighton. Because of that, Rappette could have faced up to 30 years in prison. But a plea deal with prosecutors kept his sentence in county jail. He was also given credit for 92 days already served. (JK)
