Man Held For Son's Behavior a left Howard Visnaw, 45, Flat Rock junk dealer, today began a 90- day jail term for contributing to the delinquency of his two teenage sons. Visnaw pleaded guilty before Justice Caroline Nvstrom today after he had been arrested by Un­ dersheriff Cully Johnson and Sgt Edward Goldswoithy, commander of the Gladstone State Police post. Johnson signed a complain against Visnaw Tuesday. Johnson said today that Visnaw had kept his sons, aged 13 an I 14. out of school to help their father in his unk business. The undersheriff said the father had been primarily responsible for his sons’ record of juvenile delinquency dating back six years. Last summer, Johnson said, the lads went on a five-day spree of I vandalism during W’hich they caused $1.000 damage. That incident resulted in their committ- ; ment by the Juvenile Court to Boys Vocational School in Lan- j sing. The brothers W’ere released j from the school earlier this month I and returned to the custody of I their parents. Last week they burglarized two Escanaba business places and stole, among other things, a 300 Savage rifle and 1 .- j 000 rounds of ammunition. They hid out in the woods overnight and were captured the next afternoon when they walked out of the woods at Five Corners in Danforth. They were later released to the custody of their par: ents.
