City of Flint Wants Councilman to Pay Cost of Own Drunken Driving Trial

Jason Cooper, WFNT

The City of Flint wants Councilman Eric Mays to pay the cost of his own drunken driving trial which is now estimated to be around $13,000. According to MLive, the special prosecutor appointed by the city attorney, is asking Judge Nathaniel Perry to assess the attorney fees when he sentences Mays today. Mays had been charged with five misdemeanors stemming from a Nov. 30 arrest when he was found outside a vehicle with four flat tires and facing the wrong way on I-475. Last month a jury found Mays not guilty of three of the misdemeanors, replaced one of the other charges with a lesser one, and deadlocked on the last charge. Special Prosecutor Michael Gildner is also asking that Mays be sentenced to 93 days in jail in addition to the fines. Mays called the request “sour grapes.”
