Here is the latest Michigan news from The Associated Press at 3:40 a.m. EDT

DETROIT (AP) — Almost half of the men incarcerated at a western Michigan prison have tested positive for COVID-19. The Detroit Free Press reports 612 of 1,296 prisoners, or 47% of the population at Muskegon Correctional Facility, have tested positive. Fifteen staff members have also tested positive.   Some prisoners are blaming the facility for an inadequate response to the virus, but prison officials say they took proper safety steps. Since March, 4,620 of 37,497 state prisoners have tested positive and 68 prisoners have died. State health officials on Sunday reported 768 cases of COVID-19 and four deaths in Michigan.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — President Donald Trump and his attorney general have touted Operation Legend as a much-needed answer to spiking crime. Trump claims it’s caused, at least in part, by the police reform movement and protests that have swept across the U.S. since George Floyd’s death in May. Trump also claims he’s countering rising crime in cities run by Democrats. But to the 300 federal investigators deployed to nine cities, and the local law enforcement getting help, Operation Legend isn’t about politics. It’s about reducing crime, working to solve outstanding cases and prioritizing the arrest of violent criminals. 

DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — The validity of some parishioners’ sacraments like marriage and confession are under question after a Dearborn priest learned his baptism was invalid. The Detroit Free Press reports Father Matthew Hood learned that he was not a baptized Catholic earlier this month after watching a family video of his baptism where some words were changed.  Archbishop Allen Vigneron of the Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit has acknowledged “human error has resulted in disruption to the sacramental lives of some members of the faithful” and vowed to remedy the situation for those impacted.  

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Michigan election officials say issues with counting primary ballots in Detroit are “alarming.” The Detroit News reports that all four members of the State Board of Canvassers criticized issues with ballot counting and one questioned whether the secretary of state should step in for November. The questions came after the newspaper’s report showing 72% of absentee voting precincts in Detroit had ballot tallies that were out of balance by at least one ballot. That meant that voter tracked in precinct poll books didn’t equal the number of ballots counted.
