One of two Detroit lawmakers charged with violating campaign finance laws has pleaded not guilty.
Democratic State Representative LaMar Lemmons the third entered the plea before Lansing District Court Judge Frank DeLuca Wednesday. He is free on a three-thousand-dollar personal recognizance bond.
Lemmons is accused of failing to file campaign finance statements. If convicted of the misdemeanor charge, Lemmons faces a maximum 90 days in jail and a one-thousand-dollar fine.
Cox has also charged Representative George Cushingberry junior, a Detroit Democrat, with felony perjury and failing to file campaign statements.
If convicted of perjury, Cushingberry could be expelled from the House.
