Resigned Michigan Rep. Brian Banks, D-Harper Woods, will not serve any jail time after pleading guilty to a count of misdemeanor filing false financial statements.
Banks was sentenced on Friday to time served. He previously spent one day in jail.
The politician accepted a plea deal with Attorney General Bill Schuette's office that also called for him to resign from public office.
The special election to replace Banks in the 1st House District will take place this fall. The primary is on Aug. 8, 2017, and the general election is on Nov. 7, 2017. Those dates coincide with existing elections to minimize costs.http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/index.ssf/2017/02/resigned_state_rep_brian_banks.html
