Public censure sought from Michigan Supreme Court for county judge in misconduct case


JACKSON, Michigan — The Michigan Judicial Tenure Commission is recommending the Michigan Supreme Court publicly censure a Jackson County judge for misconduct.

District Judge R. Darryl Mazur didn't deny the ethical violations. The state's high court also has been asked to order a 30-day, unpaid suspension for the judge.

Mazur told the Jackson Citizen Patriot (http://bit.ly/1NAvpkH ) he "will move forward, take my lumps for making the poor decisions I made, make amends and get beyond it."

In a handwritten letter on court stationary, Mazur asked a woman he had placed on probation for domestic violence if she was interested in a romantic relationship. He also tried to interfere in another judge's case in order to help his former neighbor.

Mazur calls his behavior "indefensible" and says he'll "never make mistakes like that again."
