Hurley man sentenced to prison

Hurley — A Hurley man was sentenced to more than three years in prison in Iron County Court Tuesday.

Andrew R. Zaleski, 39, was sentenced to a total of 3.5 years in prison for three felonies he pleaded no contest to in August.

He was sentenced to two years in prison and two years of extended supervision for felony bail jumping, two years in prison and two years of extended supervision for false imprisonment and 18 months in prison and two years of extended supervision for stalking.

Judge Gary Carlson ordered Zaleski to serve the pair of two-year prison sentences concurrently, followed by the 18 months for stalking. Online court records indicate the two years extended supervision for the stalking charge will also be served consecutively to the extended supervision ordered for the bail-jumping charge.

Zaleski was also sentenced to 90 days in jail for a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, according to online records, which he will serve concurrently to his other sentences.

He pleaded to the four charges as part of a plea agreement that resolved all six cases against Zaleski that included a total of 37 charges.

The oldest case included in the plea agreement dates back to January 2018. In that case, a woman reported she went to a Hurley hotel room believing she was meeting someone she had been texting, but instead found Zaleski hiding on the bed under the covers.

The woman had a personal protection order against Zaleski in Gogebic County at the time.

Zaleski kept her in the room for roughly 30 minutes, according to the complaint, before she was able to get out of the room when he “let his guard down.”

In another case, Zaleski is accused of repeatedly contacting the same woman in December 2018 and January 2019.

One additional charge of stalking, 15 counts of violating an out-of-state protection order and 17 counts of felony bail jumping were all dismissed Tuesday under the terms of the plea agreement.
