Judge charged in hit-and-run crash


MARINE CITY — A judge appeared in court this week on the other side of the bench.

Roseville Judge Catherine Steenland is charged with two misdemeanors in an investigation of a hit-and-run crash last September in Roseville.

She's charged with failing to stop at a personal-injury accident and failing to report an accident.

The case is being handled by the Wayne County prosecutor's office, after Macomb County authorities recused themselves.

Prosecutor Kym Worthy said the allegations against the judge are "disturbing."

A 31-year-old man said a woman in a red sedan hit his car and drove away.

The Macomb Daily reports Steenland was on medical leave at the time.
