PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) -- Two Michigan judges say mistakes are to blame for time records listing them as having two days off for an educational conference they didn't attend.

Records obtained by the Detroit Free Press under the Freedom of Information Act show Rae Lee Chabot and Shalina Kumar marked Aug. 19 and 20 as education days to attend the Michigan Judges Association Annual Conference on Mackinac Island.

The newspaper reports the Oakland County Circuit Court judges didn't attend. The county paid a $150 registration fee for Chabot, who says she changed her plans. She says the time record was "an oversight" and will be rectified.

Kumar didn't register for the conference. She says she instructed her secretary to change the records when she decided not to attend, but the change wasn't made.
