A man who pleaded to charges he broke into his estranged wife’s home and attacked her and her boyfriend has been sentenced to serve over seven years in prison.

Tobias Lee Westenbroek, 37, was sentenced Monday, April 14, in Allegan County Circuit Court.

Judge Margaret Zuzich Bakker sentenced him to spend 95 to 240 months in state prison on a charge of home invasion and 23 to 48 months in prison on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon, which he can serve at the same time. He has credit for 255 days already served.

Westenbroek pleaded no contest to the charges in March.

The attack happened in 2012 in Saugatuck Township, after which Westenbroek fled and was eventually arrested in the summer of 2013 in Sturgis, S.D.
