GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A judge says he has “serious questions” about evidence against a Michigan lawmaker who faces a second trial on corruption charges.
Federal Judge Robert Jonker set a Aug. 21 deadline for prosecutors to respond if Rep. Larry Inman asks to have two remaining charges dismissed.
Inman is a Republican from the Traverse City area.
He's accused of trying to trade votes for campaign money.
A jury in December acquitted him of lying to the FBI but couldn’t reach a verdict on charges of attempted extortion and soliciting a bribe.
Inman denies wrongdoing.
He can’t run for re-election because of term limits.
