Michigan lawmakers appear in court on misconduct charges

A former Michigan state representative who was kicked out of the legislature after being accused of misusing state resources to cover up an affair with a fellow lawmaker will go before a judge on Tuesday, her attorney says.

Cindy Gamrat is scheduled to be arraigned in 54A District Court in Lansing late Tuesday morning, her attorney, Michael Nichols, told Media General contributors on Monday.

She faces two counts of misconduct in office. Each count carries a sentence of up to 5 years in prison or a $10,000 fine.

Gamrat, of Plainwell, was expelled from the state House of Representatives in September 2015. The same night, Todd Courser resigned from his position in the House representing Lapeer on the east side of the state. The ouster stemmed from the pair’s extramarital affair, a bizarre cover-up attempt by Courser, and accusations of misconduct and misuse of public resources.
