A retired judge accused of stealing from a client of his Detroit-area law practice has been sentenced to six months in jail.
Seventy-five-year-old William Cannon also has to pay nearly $75,000 in restitution and serve five years of probation.
Cannon pleaded no contest to a charge of embezzlement in September and was sentenced Tuesday. A no-contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as one at sentencing.
Cannon retired from the 41-B District Court in Macomb County's Clinton Township in 2005 after nearly three decades on the bench.
He's accused of stealing from a Clinton Township man while serving as his estate custodian.
