Just Slow Down

The Michigan Bar Discipline Board approved a consented-to reprimand of an elected county prosecutor who had arranged for the dismissal of a speeding ticket issued to his adult step-son. The step-son was residing with him. He had entered a no contest plea to disciplinary charges arising from the incident that included conflict of interest and failure to withdraw.

Linked here is a report from the Traverse City Record-Eagle that the attorney decided not to seek reelection. Another report (an editorial) from the same source discusses the bar charges and labels the attorney Tony the Fixer.  (Mike Frisch)
