Suspended judge faces tenure commission hearing
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A judge who a state agency says had an affair with a woman who had a child-support case pending in his court is facing a key hearing.
The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission hearing for Wayne County Circuit Judge Wade McCree began Monday in Ann Arbor and could last several days. A retired judge is presiding.
Geniene La'Shay Mott disclosed an affair with McCree in December. He was placed on leave and then suspended without pay in February.
The commission says McCree lied during the agency's ethics investigation and falsely reported to prosecutors that Mott was stalking him.
McCree's attorney, Brian Einhorn, has said the judge shouldn't lose his job.
The state Supreme Court reprimanded McCree last year after he sent a shirtless photo of himself to a female court employee.
