Former Rep. Todd Courser Sentenced to Probation
Police say he tried to keep his extramarital affair with another state lawmaker a secret.
Courser asked an aide to send a bogus email to fellow Republicans to try and discredit rumors he was having an affair with former state Representative Cindy Gamrat.
Monday a Lapeer County circuit court judge sentenced him to a year of probation and a fine of more than $1,000.
If Courser doesn’t perform 90 hours of community service, he’ll get 15 days in jail.
If he violates his probation, he’ll have to go to jail for another 30 days.
