SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Sadie Bell, 58, is out on bond after admitting she shot the man she had a long-term affair with after they had sex at her Southfield apartment.
Bell wasn't happy with the outcome and accused the man of cheating on her. She punched him, he slapped her and then she shot him. He was hospitalized for five months.
Bell was convicted of assault with intent to do great bodily harm. She also was convicted of a felony gun charge. She was sentenced to four years in prison.
Oakland County prosecutors are outraged that Bell isn't in prison. Judge Phyllis McMillen granted her a rare appeal bond. Most convicts wait out their appeal behind bars, but McMillen granted a $10,000 appeal bond, much lower than Bell's original $25,000 bond.
Prosecutors say Bell makes snap decisions and reacts with violence. They say she shot her husband years ago, but never went to court for it.
