TROY, Mich. (WJRT) (7/6/2018) - A former Oakland County official with ties to Mid-Michigan is facing bribery charges.

Former Troy City Manager Brian Kischnick was arraigned Friday in federal court. He's accused of pocketing nearly $21,000 from a contractor seeking favors.

Kischnick lost his job as city manager for Troy before he was fired for allegedly assaulting a co-worker. He also is the former manager of Saginaw County's Tittabawasee Township.

Kischnick left the Tittabawassee Township position in 2012.

If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $250,000.
