Former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway pleads guilty to bank fraud charges in an Ann Arbor federal courtroom

The story from the Detroit News’s Chad Livengood (@chadlivengood):

Ann Arbor — Former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway pleaded guilty Tuesday to bank fraud and could face up to 18 months in prison.

Hathaway negotiated a guilty plea with federal prosecutors and waived her right to indictment or trial. She appeared before U.S. District Court John Corbett O’Meara in his Ann Arbor courthouse just eight days after stepping down from the high court.

There was a full quota of vehicles outside the Federal Building today in Ann Arbor, including three Homeland Security SUVs and three news trucks from 2, 4, and 7. I’m certain that more details will follow. Thanks to Bruce Vielmetti for the heads up on Twitter:
