LANSING, MI (WHTC) - The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission is recommending that Hudsonville District Court Judge Kenneth Post get 30-days-off for throwing attorney Scott Millard in jail after he appropriately advised his client not to answer a question that could be incriminating. In the December, 2011 incident, Judge Post had wanted to know for bonding purposes, if the young suspect had recently used drugs. Millard repeatedly told him not to answer on constitutional groundss, despite the judge’s threats and was held in contempt. The commission not only found Judge Post liable for the two misdeeds argued by the investigator, but added 12 of their own; Post’s attorney says a reprimand would be more appropriate. The Supreme Court will have final say on the commission's recommendation.
