A four-month investigation led by the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Unit (PIU) and the Michigan State Police (MSP) led to the criminal cases.
John pleaded guilty to all nine charges he faced and was sentenced to 36 months’ probation, with the first nine months served in the Kalamazoo County Jail.
