Prosecutor: No ruling on Michigan AG candidate before Nov. 8 election


LANSING >> A special prosecutor investigat­ing whether the Republican candidate for Michigan attorney general and others should be charged for attempting to gain access to voting machines said Friday that no decision will be made before Tuesday’s election. Muskegon County Prosecutor D.J. Hilson said in a statement that his office has been meeting with state police to review the investigat­ion and facts of the case.

“Obtaining a complete picture of the facts and circumstan­ces of the investigat­ion is essential prior to determinin­g the next step in this process,” Hilson said. “Given the complexiti­es of this investigat­ion, the time it takes to obtain and evaluate certain pieces of evidence is beyond our control.”

In August, the office of Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel asked the Prosecutin­g Attorneys Coordinati­ng Council, a state agency, to consider charges against nine people, including Matthew DePerno, her opponent in the Nov. 8 election.
