The 63-year-old man was arraigned Monday in 41A District Court in Shelby Township for his alleged involvement in the Macomb Township crime.
A charge against a Chesterfield Township man was reduced Monday from second-degree to fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to police. Antonino Giannola, 63, was initially charged with the felony offense over the weekend, but the Macomb County Prosecutor's Office changed the charge to a misdemeanor after further reviewing the case. In this instance, second-degree CSC would have been merited if authorities considered Giannola to be in a position of authority over the 15-year-old girl who reported the attack, the Macomb County Sheriff's Office said. “The relationship between the two was not such that they determined him to be in a position of authority over the girl," Sheriff's Lt. John Michalke said of the decision made by the …
Macomb County Sheriff's Office reports the incident took place Friday at a business in the 21 Mile area.
A 63-year-old Chesterfield Township man is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage employee Friday inside his Macomb Township business, police said Monday. The man, who is scheduled for a formal arraignment Monday in 41A District Court in Shelby Township, faces a charge of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to the Macomb County Sheriff's Office. The charge stems from an incident Friday at the man's business off 21 Mile in which a 15-year-old worker reported that he assaulted her while the two were alone. The suspect was lodged in Macomb County Jail in lieu of a $20,000 cash/surety interim bond over the weekend, the Sheriff's Office states. Check back with Patch for updates.

A new agreement drafted by Shelby Township officials could move relocation talks with Macomb Township forward once again.
The Macomb Township Board of Trustees breathed new life into the long-debated 41A District Court move from Shelby Township during their Sept. 12 meeting. In response to an inter-local agreement sent by Shelby Township officials that details plans for moving the court to Macomb, the Board of Trustees agreed to re-appoint a committee to review the contract. “We’ve all had the chance to read it, we are not here tonight to discuss or debate it, but I would suggest the Board reactivate and appoint the 41A District Court committee,” Koehs said. Trustees Dino Bucci, Roger Krzeminski, and Nancy Nevers, along with Koehs make up the committee. The court building could be constructed near 25 Mile and Broughton road, near the city offices. In …

The Shelby Township Board of Trustees will discuss language crafted Tuesday about the move of 41-A District Court.
After a nearly 20-year long discussion in Shelby Township over whether—and where—to construct a new 41-A Court building, the question may go to the voters. Supervisor Rick Stathakis has asked township attorney Rob Huth to draft language for an advisory ballot question designed to be a “conversation starter” among board members and residents. The question is included on Tuesday’s Board of Trustees agenda. “Do you support the Shelby Township Board of Trustees securing funds by allocation from the general fund, selling bonds and/or authorizing tax revenues, to support the design and construction of a new District Court building in Shelby Township?” Stathakis told Patch he wanted to discuss the issue with board members during the board …

The debate over whether Shelby or Macomb will house the 41-A District Court will carry on into 2011.
Shelby and Macomb Township officials agree, on paper, that it makes more economic sense to relocate the 41-A District Court to Macomb. So, why is it still a painful move for Shelby? If court stayed in Shelby, the city would continue to lose money every year. However, if the court does relocate to Macomb, it would still cost taxpayers more than $5 million in retirement and other benefits for 41-A District Court employees, said Shelby City Attorney Rob Huth during a televised work session Dec. 15. Huth said court revenue, which is on the decline, won't cover the costs of running the outdated and small courthouse in Shelby, and Shelby officials said committing to building a new court in the city would be too costly. Macomb Township has said…
