      Buning gets 15-45 years for criminal sexual conduct charges

      Scott Buning was sentenced to 15-45 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct in Antrim County.

      Scott Buning was sentenced to 15-45 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct in Antrim County.

      While the sentencing took place at a Grand Traverse County court, the charges stem from Antrim County.

      Buning made a statement in court Friday through tears and showed remorse for his crimes.

      Buning is also facing five criminal sexual conduct charges in Kalkaska County that the prosecutor says he may be sentenced more harshly for due to the consecutive crimes. Police said those charges come from the assault of a 12-year-old girl.

      Scott Buning was also facing charges in January 2013 with one count of harboring a runaway and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The Antrim County Prosecutor reported at the time that the case involved an 11-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl. Officials have not said if these cases are related.
