LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – The last time 35-year-old Joshua Harding was in court he was to hear the verdict for his sexual assault trial.

That was August 4.

As the jury was coming back into the courtroom, Harding suddenly attacked the assistant Ingham County Prosecutor with a makeshift weapon and had to be wrestled to the ground by deputies.

Today Harding was back in court via video and was sentenced to 19 – 38 years in prison.

He was found guilty of sexually assaulting two children in a Meridian Township cemetery in April 2015.

This is Harding’s third conviction on Criminal Sexual Conduct charges.
