A serious party foul by the owner of a party bus company could land him in prison.

FOX 47 News first reported about Christopher Staggs last year when he left dozens of Michigan State University students stranded at an apple orchard near St. Johns after his buses were impounded for not having insurance.

A Clinton County jury found Staggs guilty on an attempted jail escape charge on Wednesday.

While awaiting trial on a misdemeanor insurance charge, Staggs tried to forge a judge's signature on a release form, according to police.

He could spend up to two years in prison on the felony escape charge.

Staggs is scheduled to be sentenced in January.
