PONTIAC (WKZO) -- An Oakland County Judge has sentenced a Wixom man to over six-and a half years in prison for shooting at motorists on I-96 in October 2012.  Raulie Casteel pleaded no contest, but mentally ill, to charges of assault with the intent to great bodily harm less than murder and several firearms offenses.

Judge Denise Langford told Casteel "thank God you were a lousy shot" when handing down the sentence.  No one was seriously injured in the shootings that occurred along the interstate in four counties.

A Livingston County jury recently found him guilty of charges including terrorism which means he could spend life in prison.
