Every profession has its bad apples but it still shocks us when we hear about bad judges, right? So today, I give you the roundup of Michigan’s recent ne’er-do-well bad judges.

Wait - Judges go bad? Like, how? Oh, there is the judge who offered to fix tickets for the good looking defendants who appeared before him. Or the judge who jailed a woman for ten days because she allegedly cussed in the clerk’s office - even though she wasn’t even in the court!

How about the Michigan Supreme Court justice who pulled a little bank fraud and was sentenced to the federal pen? Or the Wayne County judge who texted sexy snaps of himself to court employees and had an affair with a woman who had business in his courtroom.

Yes, Michigan’s judges can really lower the bar. Or raise it, depending on which way you look at these things. So I have the lurid details of these bad judges and more, in this week’s podcast. Here is the audio:

This does not create an attorney-client relationship and is not meant to constitute legal advice, so the good news is we’re not billing you by the hour for reading this. The bad news is that you shouldn’t act upon any of the information without consulting a qualified professional attorney who will, probably, bill you by the hour.
