Michigan's Prosecutorial Sex Saga Continues

A right-wing,  Rove Republican, and conservative part of Michigan is still being rattled by the former Holland City Attorney's misconduct.

Last year,  we wrote about Carl Gabrielse (pictured) , the former Holland, Michigan City Attorney who reduced a drunk driving charge of a female defendant in exchange for sex in a courthouse jury room. In April, he was sentenced to six-months in jail for his outrageous and depraved misconduct.

Now, the rape victim is suing the City of Holland and Gabrielse. The Grand Rapid Press reports:

The lawsuit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids, alleges the 31-year-old Gabrielse committed assault and battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress. It also claims the 23-year-old victim's constitutional rights were violated. Gabrielse, who offered the woman a plea deal in exchange for sex, was sentenced to six months in jail in April for third-degree criminal sexual conduct and misconduct in office.
