The incident happened a year ago as Michigan Senator Carl Levin met with constituents at a restaurant in Big Rapids. Levin was unhurt. The pie was supposed to be a protest of the senator’s foreign policy positions.
23 year old Ahlen Mohsen threw the apple pie. 24 year old Max Kantar bought the pie. The two plead guilty to federal charges.
A federal judge in Grand Rapids sentenced the pair to 30 days in federal custody.
The Grand Rapids Press reports that during the sentencing U.S. District Judge Robert Holmes Bell said he needed to show that attacks on elected officials meeting with constituents cannot be tolerated.
