LANSING, Mich (WLNS ) – A Mason man has been sentenced to at least 16 years in prison after being convicted of soliciting a minor girl for sex.
Brad Cournaya, 50, was also found guilty in October of using a computer to commit a crime.
He was also sentenced to 16 years in prison for that crime.
The two sentences will be served at the same time.
Cournaya is perhaps better known to police as the sole suspect in the presumed death of his former girlfriend Krista Leuth in 2008.
Her body has never been found but investigators discovered her student identification and cell phone at the spot where Cournaya’s truck broke down along US-127 the night she went missing.
