The Huron County Jury came back today at 11:15, 3 days after beginning deliberations, with GUILTY verdicts in the States case against Michael & Sharon Gravelle.

Michael & Sharon Gravelle were found guilty of two out of eight misdemeanor counts of child abuse, four out of eight felony counts of child endangering and five out of eight misdemeanor counts of child endangering.

The case began after a complaint was made that the children were being kept in cages sending a social worker went to the Gravelle home to investigate. That same Huron County Social worker has testified that the cages reminded her of slave quarters. The Gravelle defense team insists that the “enclosures” were built to protect the children.

The children, who range in age from 1 to 14, suffer from problems such as fetal alcohol syndrome
and a disorder that involves eating nonfood items. Authorities removed the children from the home in September 2005 and the Gravelles lost custody of the children in March.
