Michigan AG's office to examine drug prosecutor's conduct
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - The Michigan attorney general's office plans to
take over an investigation of Wayne County's lead drug prosecutor,
who is accused of using perjured testimony in a 2005 cocaine case.
The Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press report Mike Cox's
office is stepping into the case involving Assistant Prosecutor
Karen Plants after prosecutors in four other counties declined to
handle the probe.
Plants' lawyer Kenneth Mogill says his client didn't do anything
Plants was suspended in April after the Michigan's Attorney
Grievance Commission charged her with misconduct. She is accused of
allowing an informant and two Inkster police officers to lie under
oath during a cocaine conspiracy trial.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy asked that another agency
investigate Plants.
