Detroit's Shirtless Judge Removed From Bench

 
Detroit's Shirtless Judge Removed From Bench
Posted March 27th, 2014 @ 3:57am by Michigan Radio Network

The Michigan Supreme Court has removed Wayne County Circuit Judge Wade McCree from office.

McCree, who presided in the 3rd Circuit, is best known for sending a shirtless photo of himself to his colleagues.

The state's highest court ordered McCree’s removal from office Wednesday and further suspended him for six more years if he’s re-elected in November. In 2012, the state Supreme Court publicly censured McCree for his behavior following a recommendation from the Judicial Tenure Commission.

The Commission said McCree's actions breached judicial standards with misconduct in office, irresponsible or improper conduct which erodes public confidence and a lack of personal responsibility.

According to a complaint issued by the Commission, McCree entered into a relationship with a woman who had a child custody case in his court and he did not excuse himself from the case.
