Wayne County (MI) Judge, Prosecutor, and Two Inkster Cops Face Life In Prison
Detroit — Wayne County Circuit Judge Mary Waterstone (retired), former Assistant County prosecutor Karen Plants, and Inkster (MI) cops Scott Rechtzigel and Robert McArthur were each charged with several counts of misconduct while in office in an indictment handed down on March 24. Plants, Rechtzigel, and McArthur also face multiple counts of perjury, each of which carry a maximum penalty of life in prison.
Wayne County Judge Mary Waterstone
The charges stem from a March 2005 cocaine bust involving Alexander Aceval and Richardo Pena, both of whom are currently serving prison sentences. Plants and the two cops covered up the fact one of the prosecution’s witnesses was a paid police informant. Judge Waterstone than signed an order, banning the defendant’s attorneys from accessing the paid informant’s phone records, which would have shown he had spoken to the officers.
All of them were granted $25,000 bonds. A preliminary hearing is set for April 28.

Two Disgraced North Las Vegas Cops Fired
James F. Bolelo (L) and Mark Alan Miles (R) were arrested in January
Las Vegas — After hanging with thug cops’ best P.A.L., Paid Administrative Leave, since their January arrest, former North Las Vegas cops James F. Bolelo and Mark Alan Miles were fired from the force. Their arrests stemmed from an incident last December at the Cannery Casino in which Bolelo and Miles responded to an unruly patron of the establishment. After an internal investigation of the night’s arrest, both were charged with filing a false police report, while Miles was also charged with felony oppression under color of law.
North Las Vegas Police Sgt. Tim Bedwell said police officers are held to a higher standard because they are entrusted with powers exceeding that of the average citizen.
