LAPEER- (WJRT) (AP) (06/11/21)- A judge who lost reelection in November while a misconduct case against him was pending will be barred from serving again for six years. The Michigan Supreme Court announced the result Friday against former Lapeer County Judge Byron Konschuh. The misconduct case against Konschuh stemmed from acts that occurred when he was a judge and years earlier when he was a prosecutor. Konschuh deposited at least 42 checks totaling more than $1,000 into his personal accounts when he was prosecutor. They were fees owed by a collections company hired in bad check cases. Konschuh argued that he used the money to reimburse a portion of his personal spending on office snacks and other expenses.
