MARQUETTE — Jason David Sadowski was acquitted of all seven counts following a lengthy jury deliberation, and will be released from prison, court officials said.

He was charged with one count solicitation to commit murder, two counts torture, two counts false imprisonment and two counts strangulation.

The charges stemmed from a July 2013 incident in which Sadowski was accused of tying up two women, threatening and beating them in the basement of his Ishpeming home and business.

After being convicted in March 2014, he successfully appealed the decision in December 2015 and was granted a retrial.

Jury selection for the retrial began March 6. After testimony and closing remarks, the jurors began deliberation Thursday until reaching a “not guilty” decision shortly before 7 p.m. Friday.
