Mon, 19 Jul 2021 02:10:27 EDT
A former prosecutor has been placed on probation and must give up his law license. Brian Kolodziej had a romantic relationship with a woman while handling her sexual assault case in Isabella County. The woman says Kolodziej was a predator who used his position as an assistant attorney general to manipulate her. Judge Sara Spencer Noggle says she wanted to give him a jail sentence but it would have been outside the sentencing guidelines. News of the relationship upset the conviction of a former Central Michigan University student named Ian Elliott. He was allowed to reopen his case and plead no contest to a misdemeanor.
